Hillary Clinton Urges Top-Income Earners to “Pay Their Fair Share”

If you’re still wondering whether or not Hillary Clinton is running for president in two years, stop.

Today, the former Secretary of State showered praise on a liberal nonprofit group called the New America Foundation for its work to “keep reinventing America.” Clinton was giving remarks before a crowd at the group’s conference.

Clinton also took the time to make a more policy-centered appeal that was nothing more than the same swipes taken at the so-called 1% that we’ve heard from Team Obama for years. Hillary said that employees have worked harder for top-income earners who are earning more while they are “not seeing the rewards that their hard work should have merited.”

She also said that income inequality is the reason for instability in places like Pakistan and Greece and urged “elites” to “pay their fair share” and to promote expansion of government services.

Hillary can give all the speeches in the world and they still won’t make up for the fact that when it comes to naming her accomplishments and showing proof that she is an effective leader, she is dead in the water.

Today, New York Times reporter Nick Confessor said of Hillary Clinton, “I actually think, though, the real thing they have to overcome, this question that everyone’s asking, what was her biggest accomplishment as secretary of state? And, you know, I just see flailing on this question. From her own supporters, I don’t see any good answer, or at least a solid strong answer. It’s sort of surprising to me.”
