Too Rich (or Out of Touch) to Keep Track
How many houses do you own?
From the AFL-CIO Blog:
In the past week, Sen. John McCain has proven repeatedly he just doesn’t get it. He’s said, once again, that the economy is strong. He thinks you’re “rich” only if you make $5 million or more a year. And now, in the thick of a housing crisis, he’s made a startling admission: He doesn’t even know how many properties he owns.
In an embarrassment of riches, Sen. John McCain told a reporter in New Mexico last week, “I’ll have my staff get to you,”when asked how many homes he has.
The correct answer? Ten. John McCain owns 10 houses.
Brave New Films has teamed up with SEIU to create this video about McCain’s Mansions.
