Bernie Sanders' wealth tax won't pay for free medicare, tuition: Morici

Bernie Sanders’ campaign escalates feud with top liberal think tank

One particular moment from the event that has gotten some attention online, including over at The Hill, is when co-host Bret Baier asked the largely Sanders-sympathetic audience if they'd support the senator's "Medicare For All" plan.

Brazile, a former head of the DNC, has definitely made quite the career transition after being hired by Fox News earlier this year. "I guess the president watches your network a little bit, right?" Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday night.

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, march during a protest in downtown Phildelphia on July 24, 2016, ahead of the Democratic National Convention there.

In a letter provided to CNN by his campaign, Sanders addressed the board of the Center for American Progress and CAP Action Fund on Saturday, alleging that its activities are playing a "destructive role" in the "critical mission to defeat Donald Trump".

U.S. 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Bernie Sanders participates in a moderated discussion at the We the People Summit in Washington, U.S., April 1, 2019.

Some other notable moments from the rather contentious event includes Sanders' response to questions about his tax returns, which showed that he and his wife made over a million dollars in both 2016 and 2017 and over a half-million in 2018, when he paid an effective tax rate of 26%.

Amid mounting pressure to publicize his tax returns, Sanders said he'd release them by the annual tax filing deadline as a number of his rivals steadily publicize their own tax documents.

Sanders, who has a loyal base from his 2016 run in the Democratic presidential primaries, has trailed in polls only to former Vice President Joe Biden, who isn't in the contest yet.

In 2016, a major attraction for his strong cohort of young voters was his promise of free tuition at all public colleges and universities, paid for with a new tax on Wall Street trades.

And here's the senator's 2017 return. Clinton, by contrast, released 8 years worth of complete returns.

"If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna do it", he added.

Sanders earlier Sunday wrote a harshly-worded letter accusing CAP of "using its resources to smear" him and two of his Senate colleagues running in 2020 after ThinkProgress published a video suggesting Sanders stopped disparaging millionaires when he became one.

Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir brushed off those suggestions, telling CNN the candidate's personal wealth had "zero impact" on his policies.

Warren released 10 years of her tax returns last year and followed with an 11th year of released returns last week.
