WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 20: Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-VT) delviers opening remarks during the confirmation hearing for Deputy Labor Secretary Julie Su to be the next secretary of the Labor Department in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on April 20, 2023 in Washington, DC. A handful of Democratic and independent senators -- many of them up for re-election in 2024 -- have not said how they plan to vote on Su, who, if confirmed, would be the first Asian American in the Biden administration to serve in the Cabinet at the secretary level.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said in an interview this week that he believes that all money people make over $999 million per year should be confiscated by the government.

The socialist senator made the remarks during an interview with Chris Wallace on CNN’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace.”

“Sir, you’re saying that billionaires should not exist,” Wallace said. “So are you basically saying that once you get to $999 million, that the government should confiscate all the rest?”

“I’m saying that we should go back to a very progressive tax policy like what we had under Dwight D. Eisenhower,” Sanders said.

“Which would mean that, over a billion dollars, it basically all goes to the government?” Wallace pressed.

“Yeah,” Sanders responded. “You may disagree with me, fine. Yeah, I think people can make it on $999 million.”
