Political Revolution

A Scary Halloween Twitter Message from Bernie Sanders

Mars Snickers Bar
Written by JoAnn Chateau

As we pass out Snickers to trick-or-treaters this Halloween, we should pause to ponder the successful Mars family, of candy bar fame. It is, after all, the third wealthiest family in America… and a pretty scary example of a wealth dynasty.

So, um, what kind of taxes do you think they pay? And why does that matter to democracy? As it happens, Bernie Sanders tweeted the answers to those very questions in The Spooky Truth About Your Candy.

Happy Scary Halloween!
