Ann Romney

Hardknock Life

They were not easy years. You have to understand, I was raised in a lovely neighborhood, as was Mitt, and at BYU, we moved into a $62-a-month basement apartment with a cement floor and lived there two years as students with no income… Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time.

– Ann Romney, wife of Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, 1994, discussing their hardknock years of having to sell stock so they could live without a job
