The First Lady’s Inaugural wear yesterday cost much more than $15,000.

Meanwhile, in the real world, incomes are dropping.
In 2011 the annual median income was $26,364 in America.

That means Michelle Obama’s clothes for Inauguration day cost more than half as much as the median US income.
She feels your pain.
