As rich guys Donald Trump and Jeb Bush spend millions to get the crowds that Bernie Sanders attracts with much less money, one Republican contender apparently isn’t so rich.

According to Scott Walker’s financial disclosure statements, he owes five figures on his credit card, on which he is paying 27 percent interest.

If Walker gets elected, it won’t take much imagination to predict he will trickle up the debts created by his Republican predecessors — Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and the Bushes — with nothing trickling down to those of us who struggle to pay their bills as well as our own.
