Actually, Asshole, I Imagine You Don't Understand Their Stress

It is indeed stressful from going from being rich to slightly less rich. I won't deny that. I live pretty well, but my finances aren't exactly perfect or care free. Still I'm pretty sure people with no money have that kind of stress every fucking day of their lives. Jeebus.

“People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress,” said Alan Dlugash, a partner at accounting firm Marks Paneth & Shron LLP in New York who specializes in financial planning for the wealthy. “Could you imagine what it’s like to say I got three kids in private school, I have to think about pulling them out? How do you do that?”

People at all income levels have actual problems, including financial ones, but our new elites are quite possibly the worst people who ever lived.
