Last night at the Democratic Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders promised to release his 2014 tax returns today. We know the senator has had a busy day in the Vatican, so we here at The People's View created a nice, casual reminder for Senator Sanders as to what the time is in his home state of Vermont. We will update this page should Sanders or his wife Jane release the returns at any point today.

Update, 6:30 pm by Spandan: Well, Bernie has released his returns for a single year (2015), sort of. Two things to notice immediately:

  • His home mortgage interest deduction is HUGE - almost $23,000, way, way above the average $5,000 that even people making over $200,000 get.
  • He did not release the names of charities he gives to.
  • The tax return confirms Jane Sanders' income from Texas' toxic nuclear material dumping board that tried to dump Vermont's nuclear waste near a poor Latino community in Texas known as Sierra Blanca.
