Just wondering, is all

How is it that Meg Whitman can afford to spend over $100 million out of her own funds for a political campaign, but she can't afford to hire a housekeeper whom she'd have to pay a living wage?

Easy answer - she's a Republican...

Not just Republicans do that. I've known of Democrats who do that... people decide that certain jobs just shouldn't be well-paid. They don't consider that the work is worth very much and they want to keep certain expenses as low as possible. They convince themselves that the going rate is what they will pay, no more and (maybe) no less.

They, on the other hand, are very special people and worth their weight in gold.

I read her housekeeper made $23 per hour... over twice as much as my largest hourly wage ever.
