Report: Bernie Sanders Was Paid Over $1 Million in 2016

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., made over $1 million in 2016 — with $795,000 of it coming from his best-selling book, "Our Revolution," his U.S. Senate financial disclosure revealed.

Aside from his book, Sanders took in another $63,750 for his upcoming book: "Bernie Sanders' Guide to Political Revolution" and $6,735 in royalties from his 1997 book, "Outsider in the House," the Seven Day newspaper in Vermont reported.

"That's more than $865,000 for peddling his working-class ideas," wrote the paper's John Walters. "No bad."

On top of that, the newspaper noted all rank-and-file members of the Senate earn at least $174,000 a year.

This puts the "self-proclaimed Democratic socialist" in the top 4 percent of Americans in terms of income, The Daily Caller said.

The website said Sanders, who made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has made a political career out of attacking the wealthy.

The Daily Caller also noted Sanders owns three homes, including a $600,000 home on the shore of Lake Champlain.
