Pushing her new book “Hard Choices,” Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that Americans have to deal with the “cancer of inequality” and can do so only by coming together and making . . . “hard choices.”
“At the time I became secretary, there was a fairly strong current of thinking that the United States was in decline, I didn’t believe it then, and I don’t believe it now, but I also don’t believe that our leadership is somehow endowed from birth of our country,” she said. “I think people will see that we are strong and well-equipped to restore prosperity here at home, to deal with the cancer of inequality, to give people in our country the ladders of opportunity that have always been a hallmark of the United States and the American Dream. But they will recognize that doesn’t happen by accident or wishing for it or engaging in ideological and rhetorical battles. That happens because people come together and make a series of choices, including some hard choices to establish a foundation for a strong economy, a strong united society.”
This from the woman who along with Bill Clinton, according to their tax returns, were buried in legal fees owing an estimated $12 million by the end of 2002.
(That’s the same legal fee debt that Bill and Hillary had the chutzpah to ask taxpayers to help pay).
That debt had been erased by the end of 2003. And the Clinton’s net worth has since skyrocketed to an estimated $100 million, according to the Washington Post. That, ladies and gentlemen, is an average of $622,000 a month or $20,700 of income per day.
How many middle class families do you know making that kind of cheese?
In fact, it would take the average American household (making the median income of $51,017 a year) 12 years to make what Bill and poor Hillary make in a month.
Hillary, champion of the middle class, has made more than 90 speeches since leaving her post as Sec. of State. And if you guessed that she has been speaking to your average middle class audience, you’d be dead wrong. Most of Hillary’s high-profile appearances included private equity firms, big investment banks, and a host of colleges and universities. Hillary was recently hammered when her usual speaking fee of $200,000 a speech was revealed by the New York Times.
It’s going to be really hard for a serial-millionaire, one-percenter like Hillary Clinton to put herself up as America’s foremost champion of the middle-class.
