f Randall had listed William as a dependent, he would be covered. And again, I was under the impression MULTI millionaires. I personally know people who have more than 50 million. I thought from the way they were presented that that's what Randall had too. It was at the least strongly implied. These very wealthy people often go to doctors who don't take insurance at all, because they can. I just can't believe that William's medical expenses broke them. And as for the building, sure, it would be pricey, but again, very wealthy people often have a lot of property anyway: three or four homes. Even if they're not the kind of people who charter planes or buy boats, it's not at all uncommon for people to have a city apartment, a big house, a summer property, a ski lodge. It just seems that Randall was presented as much richer than he was: people with only a million or two don't buy a car for $100,000 cash. that's the kind of thing you do when you have 10 or 20 million. In my experience.
Not that it really matters, though, because the show doesn't persuade me that it has any connection to reality anymore. A show that can retrofit that a man lied about his brother being alive, can retrofit that a woman had a secret artistic passion (that lay COMPLETELY dormant for 20 years), can certainly retrofit income.
ETA: Randall deciding to run on a day when they'd just lost their stable insurance is what I mean by irresponsible. At that moment he had to know they would have to get COBRA. For multi multi millionaires, no biggy. For someone with one or two million, it's a biggy. Knowing Beth lost her job, he should have postponed his idea of campaigning. Old Randall would have.
But again, this is partly why I've just gone off the show. The characters don't seem to have continuity.
