The disgusting and untrue Class Warfare narrative that Democrats are trying very hard to create is that it was wrong for Ann Romney to be a stay-at-home mother because doing so is a “luxury” most people can’t afford.
All of this as records show that the “poor” Obama family only earned a combined income of $479,062.00 when their daughters were 4 and 7.
By comparison the median household income from 2004-2005 in the United States was $46,071.00.
How did that poor Obama family ever manage to get by on just $432,991.00 more than the average U.S. family?
Must have been tough.
Barack Obama pulled in $162,100.00 that year (2005) which was a whopping $116,029.00 more than the average U.S. family.
And Democrats are pushing the story that they represent the average American because Ann Romney was privileged?
Here’s “average American” Obama:
Speaking Friday at what the administration called “The White House Forum on Women and the Economy,” President Barack Obama said that after his two daughters were born, he and his wife—both Harvard Law School graduates—could not afford the “luxury” of having her stay home with the children.
“Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling,” he said. “And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work.
That was Obama… an entire week before Rosen attacked Ann Romney.
So, the Obamas are fighting for the average American because they’ve been there… they had to scrape by on just $479,062.00 per year, just like you.
