Bernie Sanders Biography

Bernie Sanders was born in the family of emigrants from Poland that were Jewish by their origin. The boy was born in 1941, on the 8th of September. Bernie has two elder brothers. His family was quite poor, they came from working class. Thus since his childhood Bernie Sanders felt, that it was unfair for some people to struggle their living, while the others spend $20,000 per hour for some unnecessary things. Probably, then he got interested in politics.

The future senator attended Brooklyn’s James Madison high school. After that he entered University of Chicago. During his studying in the university he became the member of civil rights movement. Before Sanders was involved in politics, he tried various jobs, including freelance writing.

His first success in politics came in 1981, when he was chosen as the mayor of Burlington. He was elected 4 times for this post. In 2007 he was elected as senator and then reelected for the second term.

Bernie Sanders is an independent politician; he doesn’t belong to any party.

His political views are close to socialism. That’s why he had a conflict with billionaires Koch brothers – he is afraid that soon billionaires in USA will control not just economy but also political life. It is the main reason of Bernie Sanders Koch brothers conflict.Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders seems to be honest, when he tells, that he is ready to struggle for the rights of the middle class. That’s why he is called Bernie Sanders filibuster.

He filibustered the extension of bush tax cuts in 2010. Bernie Sanders the speech is always full of criticism of the representatives of the upper class, who make $250,000 per week, when the middle class has to struggle their living.

In October, 2010 he told the legendary speech that lasted 8 hours. He tried to encourage the middle class to struggle for their rights. The speech became the foundation for Bernie Sanders book, named “The Speech: A Historic Filibuster on Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class”. Bernie Sanders is so popular, because of this book and because of Bernie Sanders veterans bill. He sent this bill to the acting President of USA Barack Obama. He offered the President to pay this bill for his own cost and to focus his attention on the problem of veterans.

Jane met Sanders, when he was just appointed as the mayor of Vermont. It was her second marriage. Later she used to be married David Driscoll and she had three children with him.

Bernie used to be married too. His first wife was Deborah Shilling Messing. The couple had no children. But just after the divorce Sanders lived with a woman named Susan Mott for a while. She is the mother of his only son, Levi Sanders, who is 46 now.

In spite of his divorce with the first wife and short time relationship with his son’s mother, Bernie turned to be a good father and husband.


Socialist Bernie Sanders has not many assets. He is not fond of expensive cars or big houses.

He has a condo in Washington, D.C., that is valued for $100,000 approximately. But Bernie is not the owner of the house and pays mortgage for it. He reports, he must pay $50,000-$100,000 annually for his condo. He also told that all he gets from selling of his book “The Speech” he donates to charity. It really seems that Senator Sanders works not for money, but to make his country better.

Of course, it is rumored that Senator is not so poor and he is the owner of at least two houses – one in Vermont and another one on Capitol Hill. But Bernie Sanders insists his family doesn’t own mansions or expensive cars. He hopes to become a President in 2016 and help middle class to struggle for their rights!
