Hillary Clinton certainly has earned a lot of money in this God-forsaken country. Over $139 million in just a few short years. You’d think making that kind of coin, she would kiss the ground she walks on. Yet, Hillary, like her former boss, wants to fundamentally change things. So she can make a lot more.
When a person makes $139 million, you’d think she was part of some Dot Com. Or perhaps she was part of a successful startup. Nope. Hillary Clinton earned that money with her voice.
But Hillary Clinton is no Streisand or Celine Dion. In fact, if you heard her sing, you’d certainly ask for a refund. Frankly, if you hear her talk, you would likely do the same.
But we learned recently that with their voices, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, earned more than $139 million between 2007 and 2014, this according to eight years of federal income tax returns released by her campaign.
The returns show that the Clintons paid an overall federal tax rate of 31.6 percent during those years, not nearly enough, given that these Leftists are always demanding that ordinary “dead broke” Americans pay more.
As I indicated earlier,the bulk of the Clintons’ income came from speeches. And these speeches were given to corporate and interest groups by Bill Clinton and later by Hillary Clinton after she resigned as Secretary of State in early 2013. Yes, the Pay-to-Play was in full swing, when the power rednecks got together.
In a statement released by her campaign, Hillary Clinton said the couple has paid nearly $44 million in federal taxes on $139.1 million in income since 2006, and donated nearly $15 million to charity. That’s less than 11 percent for you boys and girls keeping score.
Clinton, who claimed to be “dead broke” after she and Bill left the White House, have surely managed to create a nice little cottage industry for people who didn’t invent anything significant. They must have powerful WORDS! The only words that pay better are “STICK ‘EM UP!”
“We’ve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Children’s Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas — and we owe it to the opportunities America provides,” she said.
Clinton’s statement did not comment on the specifics of her earnings. Last May, financial disclosures released by her campaign reported that the couple had earned more than $30 million from speeches and book royalties since January 2014. I can hardly wait to see how 2015 ends up, even after the Clintons were both caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
As I mentioned earlier, the Clintons donated only 11 percent of their income to charity in 2014, according to her tax return. What I should add is the Clintons donate mainly to their OWN charity, boosting personal donations to their global family charity, the Clinton Foundation, to between $5 million and $10 million.
These people are scandalous, and the most excellent kind of Leftists.
