He said that Kavanaugh has assets of nearly $1 million between the equity in his home and his retirement account.
In 2016, Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt accrued over three credit cards and a loan.
So he has a debt to assets ratio of about 0.25 or lower?? pretty good actually.
By the way, a simple mortgage on a house in DC can easily put you $200K in debt. Is that the "loan" they refer to??
Tuff choice. Lol.
“$200,000 in credit card debt during the past 10 years”
That alone shows he is a piker. He should be dropped by the CC companies because of insufficient activity!
Billy Blythe Clinton spends 200 grand on hookers every year! Can’t blame him though.
Asheville Tourists? We went to a game, a few years ago, and I was totally confused... The game was won in the last inning by a walk off home run. Great game for the home team. What really screwed up my brain was the scoreboard.
It listed the teams as: VISITORS with TOURISTS the home team...
Damn, I was messed up the whole game!
Were you confused too?
With a name like Merrick Garland, you know he has to be gay.
I get a bonus airline ticket every year because I average about $25,000 annually on my credit card. And since I pay the bill on time each month, I always get the ticket every year.
Maybe that qualifies me to be on SCOTT’S.

This hit piece was written by some millennial “fake newser” who probably doesn’t even make $20K a year, and thus thinks the amount is extravagant. It’s obvious from the breathless outrage that comes huffing through the text.
Not too comfortable about the Jesuit influence.....
Fear not, demonrats. [Rr] must be building an insurance policy if the baseball thing don’t work. Geeze what turds.
Wake me if they find cash in his freezer.
I just visited the Washington Nationals website to see about purchasing group tickets. There was no option to pay cash, and it specifically stated: Mastercard preferred by MLB.com
I’m thinking that he probably charged maybe $200k on his cc over 10 years... NOT that it was DEBT after 10 years.
Two daughters in private school, home repairs, travel and ball game tickets would easily account for $20k a year or much more. At their income level, they could easily pay off the cc charges.
They have a good history. Sparky Anderson was their manager when I first started attending their games. Then it was the Orioles and Cal Ripkin Senior was the manager. One of the best A teams ever.
Yeah, same for me...my “credit” card is actually an automatic debit one a month. No actual credit card debt or interest charges.
Leaves a plastic trail but gathers reward points.
The ‘friends’ he bought tickets for repaid him, he was just bundling as a favor.
The financial statement is a snapshot in time. The 2016 statement showed debts for three credit cards and a personal loan, each between $15,000 and $50,000. The explanation was that he purchased six season tickets for himself and friends, with the friends reimbursing him, and that he made improvements to his home. The 2017 statement disclosed one liability, a loan balance of under $15,000 taken against his thrift savings plan account.
He also disclosed that he is a coach for his daughters’ 5th-6th grade and 4th grade basketball teams.
I guess liberals pay cash for everything......even their abortions (smirk).
The Washington Post story, unlike the hill’s selective bit of quoting, is not really a hit piece.
Seems Kavanaugh is the Democrat’s STATED type of public servant, a guy who served his whole life, and didn’t take money for it, so he has very little. Although “very little” does include about a million in assets, counting his house and 401K; and he’ll have a pension, and his wife has a pension, and a job that pays about $60,000 a year.
This guy sounds like most of America, unlike most judges that are in the top 1%. It’s kind of a refreshing change.
And he’s pretty trusting, apparently he ran up the credit card debt buying tickets for friends, who then later paid him back.
I’m not sure I have enough clearance on all my credit cards to hit $200,000, although if you read the Post article, I’m not sure all of his debt was credit cards, as part of it looks like a 2nd-trust loan.
This didn’t include his home mortgage.
I loved baseball as a kid, but would never spend $8,000 for a season ticket to what passes for the sport these days.
