He doesn’t care for it.
In audio captured by Buzzfeed from the John and Ken Show on Thursday, Sanders appeared to have lost his cool.
Host: You didn’t answer the main question about what jobs have you created. It’s pretty vague, your background. What have you done in your life?
Bernie Sanders: There’s nothing vague—
Host: I’m not really clear on what kind of jobs you’ve had, besides Senator.
Sanders: Well, I have been in the U.S. House of representatives and actually before that, I was a mayor of 8 years. You ever been to Burlington, VT?
Host: Yeah, but have you ever not been paid by taxpayers?
Sanders: All right, look, if you don’t like government my friend, that’s fine. I’m proud of the record I’ve established as a mayor, making Burlington, VT, one of the more beautiful small cities in America, proud of my record in the House, proud of my record in the United States Senate. You don’t like government? That’s your point of view. I am proud of what I have accomplished.
It it worth noting that Sanders’ first stable income came when he was 40-years-old when he was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont. After becoming mayor, he found another government paycheck, this time from the House of Representatives. Sanders is currently taking in income from taxpayers since he is a senator.
