I hadn't though of Bernie in that regards, but you are correct. Biden's story is similar to Sanders'.
In challenging President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said he had released 21 years of his returns and then claimed relative poverty for himself.
Biden said, "I entered as one of the poorest men in Congress, left one of the poorest men in government, in Congress and as vice president."
Biden likely was among the less wealthy members when he first entered Congress, as a senator, in 1973.
The latest available rankings by the respected Center for Responsive Politics that include Biden, based on official reports filed in 2015, put Biden near the bottom of 581 members of the federal legislative, executive and judicial branches, in terms of wealth.
We rate Biden’s statement Mostly True.
As I recall one of your reasons for considering Costa Rica was the cost of doctors and medicine. There are some procedures, like that kid's dislocated shoulder, for which I might travel to Mexico. For more advanced medical procedures I'd probably do some very careful shopping abroad.
A couple years ago I considered traveling abroad for some non-emergency dental work. The travel costs made it prohibitive but we did shop around and changed dentists locally. We did once travel to Bend, Oregon, about 250 miles away for a medical procedure for my wife. The savings covered the cost of the hotel and restaurants and then some.

You're assuming that Joe's reporting honestly. As I've already posted here, White House records suggest Joe's been telling porky pies about knowing nothing about Hunter's business dealings.
My guess, once 023 comes, is that the connections between Joe and Hunter's money laundering operation will be gone over with a fine tooth comb...well, I'm certain of that. From what I can tell from reports on the content of the laptop...which you're still pretending away, is that the fine tooth comb will prove problematic for the Former Truck Driver.
