Bernie Sanders recently boosted his “authentic socialist politician” cred by purchasing a third home, and on this #WomensEqualityDay the former presidential candidate is lecturing about equal pay:
Pay equity is not a partisan issue, but instead an issue of basic fairness. In America, there should be equal pay for equal work.

Sanders really opened a can of hypocrisy worms with that one:
You make $174,000 plus benes and employ no one.
You should stop talking. https://t.co/1VBqr4wAer

So you've done nearly zero actual work your entire life… and own three homes. Yes, fairness thy name is Bernie. https://t.co/AYmRtUTuOD

@SenSanders Really? Who else at your wife's college got $200,000 severance pay?

@SenSanders no, there shouldn't be. Equal pay for equal productivity isn't the same as equal pay for equal work.

Good thing no study shows that people are being paid unequally for equal work https://t.co/EeAb3dxzf5
