Bernie Sanders threw out a ridiculous Tweet into the Twittersphere, and naturally, he got his butt handed to him.
He proved that he has no understanding of the free market, but what soon put back in his place.
Here was his original Tweet followed by the responses:
I say to Walmart: Get off of welfare. Start paying your employees a living wage!

@SenSanders Walmart jobs are not designed to raise a family of 4

@SenSanders I say to government "Shut up and let the market decide wages!"

@SenSanders So basically you want Walmart to raise its prices so the poor people can't afford necessary goods.
