Hovde, who has a net worth of between $58 million and $240 million, has no clue what needs his fellow citizens have. He has lived a life of comfort and has always been free from want. When he was diagnosed with MS he did not have to worry about how he would pay for treatment. He does not have to worry today about how to pay for his ongoing treatment. He has never lived paycheck to paycheck. He did not pay attention to the plight of his fellow high school students. He did not learn from the example of our principal. He claims that he would be a citizen legislator. How can he be? He has absolutely zero understanding of what it is like to live as an average citizen.
The statement that Eric Hovde has absolutely zero understanding of what it’s like to live as an average citizen couldn’t be more true; after all, Hovde’s the same guy who enjoys buying banks and flying around Wisconsin on private jet.
