‘Dead Broke’? Hardly

Last year, Hillary Clinton bemoaned her impoverished state upon leaving the White House at the end of Bill’s second term. “[W]e came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt,” she lamented. “We had no money when we got there and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education — you know, it was not easy.” Even if that were completely true, they didn’t waste much time winning, as Barack Obama recently put it, “society’s lottery.” The Associated Press reports, “Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton reported Friday that they earned more than $30 million combined in speaking fees and book royalties since January 2014.” That’s more than $1 million per month. Nice work if you can get it. Bill justifies it all, saying, “I gotta pay our bills” — they did pay off a mortgage of up to $5 million — and that he gives most of his income to the Clinton Foundation anyway. Never mind that the Foundation’s pay-to-play setup is grossly corrupt. Meanwhile, Hillary complained in Iowa, “There’s something wrong when CEOs make 300 times more than the American worker.” She might not be the best messenger for that one.
