Bernie Sanders says ‘ultra-rich’ have been ‘looting’ for 40 years, amid looting of businesses and banks. By Nicholas Ballasy.

“The richest 400 Americans sit on $3 trillion — the size of the entire UK economy,” Sanders, a Vermont Independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, tweeted Sunday. “The billionaire class now pays a lower tax rate than people living paycheck to paycheck. The looting of America has been going on for over 40 years — and the culprits are the ultra-rich.”

Sanders has not denounced the actions of the violent protestors, who have set fires in cities and looted large retailers such as Target and banks including Chase.

Another Democrat encouraging the looters. Yes here are inequities of opportunity and there is corruption, but this is not the way.
