A struggling mom who wrote to President Obama about her financial hardship and received a handwritten response from him saying, “Things will get better!,” has had to sell the letter to an autograph dealer to help pay for a house.
Jennifer Cline, 28, from Monroe, Mich., wrote to Obama describing how she and her husband had lost their jobs in 2007. She wrote, “I lost my job, my health benefits and my self-worth in a matter of five days.”
Cline tells WJBK-TV she sold the note because she and her husband want to buy a home, and that her family is more important than a piece of paper.
Jason Cline tells The Detroit News his wife remains an Obama supporter.
The autograph collector who bought the note hopes it fetches $18,000.
