Holy Hilton, Batman! No wonder they can't connect with Blue Collar folks.

The McCains increased their budget for household employees from $184,000 in 2006 to $273,000 in 2007, according to John McCains tax returns.


For real. They pay more for "help" annually than most Americans earn. Not just that - but those card bills we were all aghast at - those aren't debt - those are paid off monthly. Did you hear that! That is how much the McCain's charged in one month.

Their credit card bills peaked between January 2007 and May 2008, during which time Cindy McCain charged as much as $500,000 in a single month on one American Express card and $250,000 on another, while one of their two dependent children had an AmEx card with a monthly balance as large as $50,000.

A campaign aide who did not want to be identified discussing the McCains personal finances stressed that the credit card balances are not ongoing debt.

....

It has been the McCains practice and procedure, as previously indicated, to pay off the balance of credit cards on a monthly basis, so they do not carry credit card debt, the aide said in a statement.


On a reassuring note - Cindy McMoney will deign to purchase suits from an American designer if she becomes First Lady; until then she will continue to purchase her $3,000 Escada suits.
