Certainly perspective has a lot to do with it. Ms. Clinto, used to the very best after their stay in the WH at taxpayer expense, was perhaps shocked at how much that lifestyle really costs when taken on without taxpayer funds to draw from. (you know free house, free food, free security, free transportation, expense account for clothes and so on.)So I can relate to the sticker shock she felt concerning housing costs, education costs as the family stepped back out on their own.But people really? Had a “problem” putting together the cash for their houses ? What, did Chelsey have some radical extravagant addition to what the rest of us pay for a college education and “borrow” for? Didn’t Bill have a “pension” of about 17K a month to fall back on? How many of us do not make that in 6 months? ($201,700.00/yr pension)Plus we the people pay 100K a year for “staff and office”, Secret service protection for life and medical care for life. Hillery can claim a 20K a year pension as well.I don’t know. Seems to me it;s a far cry from “dead broke”. I’ve been dead broke.
