It’s always interesting to hear a progressive politician like Hillary Clinton misinform her supporters about how her hubby “ol Bill” created millions of jobs and improved the overall economy while cleverly leaving out that it was the Republican controlled Congress that pushed “ol Bill” into making economic concessions that were actually the catalyst for the robust Clinton economy.

And so it is with “ultra-progressive” socialist Bernie Sanders, who actually didn’t earn a paycheck until well into his 40’s, lecturing his supporters about “profit and lose” while taking a maneuver right out of the Clinton's political playbook of misinformation by  fibbing about how the entertainment giant “Disney” abuses its workers through its hiring practices concerning immigrants.

Sanders drew the attention of Disney CEO Bob Iger, who responded in a private Facebook post, “To Bernie Sanders: We created 11,000 new jobs at Disneyland in the past decade, and our company has created 18,000 in the U.S. in the last five years. How many jobs have you created? What have you contributed to the U.S. economy?”

No doubt an interesting question, so let’s explore socialist Sanders' contribution to his state of Vermont, which of course he been representing for decades!

In Vermont, private sector jobs shrank 1.2%, however to be fair government jobs skyrocketed by 7.5%. Also Vermont’s high taxes keep businesses from wanting to settle there.

Moreover, a little-reported fact that seldom gets any press is that the progressive state of Vermont provided 100% government controlled healthcare until recently when the state was finally forced to scrub the policy because the state was going bankruptl

Of course “Ol Socialist Bernie” is mum about that “socialist experiment” as he is towards commenting on another “socialist experiment” – Venezuela.

Do you think Bernie Sanders could learn a lot from this Disney CEO?
