Jesse Ventura has been turning some heads lately. This time, he’s making waves by saying that Bernie Sanders is his “hero” right now. It’s a shock coming from the former Minnesota governor who once said he considered himself a “moderate Libertarian.”
On his show, Off the Grid, Ventura discussed the problems he has with how wealth and income are distributed in this country and took time to give Bernie Sanders a nod.
I’d like to see them implement a maximum wage. If you can’t live off of $100,000,000 a year, there’s something wrong with you. There’s not a person on the planet that should make more than that in one year. What could you possibly spend it all on?
I think what Bernie is doing is wonderful. He’s on the right track because the minimum wage has been stagnate for so long. People cannot survive on it.
I think it’s brilliant that Bernie has made this income disparity the number on issue of his campaign. The pay gap has been widening for far too long, so hooray for Bernie Sanders. He’s my hero right now.
