It’s amazing how poorly prepared candidate Bloomberg was for scrutiny on this and a mountain of other matters. He spent a fortune but failed to put the time in. A proper campaign should have started in 2016 and disclosed everything. I don’t agree with too many of Bernie’s solutions but he is right to focus attention on the problems posed by the billionaire class - they are becoming almost a fourth branch of government in the US, and should be viewed with grave suspicion when they run for the presidency as well.

I would say the billionaires have been a forth branch for many years.

There are those who would say the billionaires have been running things for quite a while, and elections are just for show.

Yep. This guy really would be the dictator a lot of you fine folks keep saying Donald Trump is.

Trump actually wants LESS government. This shitbag thinks Idi Amin was too liberal.
