By CCN: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the poster child for the “Get Off My Lawn” cranky old man. He’s also a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist as well as a hypocrite and has no problem spreading lies to push his own agenda.
Case in point: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and eight other commie Senators sent a letter to Delta Air Lines, scolding the company for paying workers $9 an hour while the CEO pulled down $40 million in compensation and pushing for worker unionization.
Delta Airlines is worth billions and paid its CEO $22 million in 2017.
It’s fighting its employees who want to join a union and negotiate for better wages, telling them to buy video games instead.
That is the kind of greed we are going to end. pic.twitter.com/0EBS1Xxa9M

Parsing a portion of the letter reveals lies and hypocrisy from the far-left politicians:
“Mr. Bastian, you earned almost $40 million in the last two years while paying workers who make Delta Air Lines arguably the most financially successful airline on the planet as little as $9 per hour. Thousands of your employees live paycheck to paycheck and seek IAM representation to better their lives….[allow] Delta workers to decide whether unionizing is right for them.”
