This news is a bit old, but I still thought it was interesting… Back in June when John McCain and his wife released their financial records, they revealed that they have a good bit of credit card debt.
In fact, McCain and his wife had $10k-$15k in joint debt, and his wife also had a second card on which she was carrying $100k-$250k in on an American Express card. On top of this, they reported another American Express card with $15k-$50k for a “dependent child.”
It’s not clear if they’re actually carrying this much credit card debt from one month to the next, or if they just spend a ton of dough and then pay it off every month. Regardless, I hope they’re using reward credit cards.
And before anyone asks… The Obama’s reported no liabilities.
