- Bernie Sanders was mocked by Mike Bloomberg during Wednesday night’s debate, remarking: ‘The best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What did I miss?’

- He owns a main residence in Burlington, Vermont, a one bedroom pied-à-terre in Washington, D.C., which is just a half-mile walk from the Capitol Building
- He most recently plopped down $575k in cash for a lakefront cabin in North Hero Island, Vermont in 2016
- His Congressional financial disclosure released in May, showed he was firmly in the nation’s one percent, earning nearly $1.06 million in 2017 — the second year in a row he had topped the million mark
