You Won’t Believe the Candidates’ Savings Compared to Ours
THE AVERAGE AMERICAN SAVINGS ACCOUNT?
It's not hard to imagine that in today's society, the average American has about $1,000 in their savings account. It doesn't really make you feel bad, until you realize how much less that is than all of our Presidential Candidates savings accounts.
According to Wallethub, the average Presidential Candidate cash savings is $16 million. 16 Million! Wow! What the heck! The divide is so great, it makes you feel terrible about where we're headed. How does it make you feel? Would you rather have a rich President or a Poor President? Will a President that has less relate to Americans trying to put food on their table working 3 jobs? Is it all about survival of the fittest? How can a person whose never been hungry, understand what a working American needs? Or does it really matter anyway? We need wealth in our country in order to move forward so maybe we need a President who knows how to do that?
