1. There are no quotes from whomever claimed they were underpaid. It’s innuendo.
2. There is no mention of Bernie’s response.

These person’s pay would come from campaign funds. It’s not his money. No reason he’d be stingy with it.

This is an accurate statement.

The truth doesn't sound as exciting as Caca's made up gotcha.

So now Newsweek is fake news? roflmao

Bernie should be paying his staff $30 an hour. $15 is not a living wage. Such a hypocrite. "Mansions for me but not for thee" should be his campaign slogan.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

The veracity of the story will prove itself out. We might as well wait for the dust to settle before making any more assumptions.

After all, we've come to the understanding that we can't always trust what we read from any of these media outlets.

As for this story, if it's true that the campaign isn't paying the desired wage I doubt its out of malice or greed on the candidate's part. The main reason Bernie might have for not paying more is more likely to be the inability to pay more, not that desire to pay less. I think it's far more likely that they're having problems getting ahold of enough of other people's money to pay for their values than their values actually being any different than what they assert.

Free college will make up for it. Then when college is free, the degrees will be worth what you paid for them, all else being equal.
