Hillary and being broke

I am beginning to feel pretty bad about my POV on Hillary. When you realize in the time since wild Bill left office with the family dead ass broke, she had done remarkably well in a short time. Im glad she has opened up and allowed us to feel her pain as they clawed out of the hole. And when Bill said they actually go to a grocery store on weekends, it was like damn! They are just like us!!



Hillary Clinton: We Were 'Dead Broke' Upon Leaving White House
Emily Thomas
The Huffington Post
06/09/14 04:17 PM ET

In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer slated to air Monday night, Hillary Clinton revealed that she and former President Bill Clinton were "dead broke" when they left the White House.

During one of their last years in the White House, the Clintons reportedly earned $416,039, the New York Daily News reports, citing the couple's 1999 federal income tax return. But apparently that was not enough to cover their debts and their daughter's education.

“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Clinton told Sawyer. “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.”

According to Mother Jones, just before she left the White House as first lady, Hillary was given an $8 million advance for her memoir Living History. The couple had also purchased two homes, one in Washington, D.C., and another in Chappaqua, New York, Time reports.

Speaking engagements and books deals quickly began bringing in money. From from 2000 to 2007, the couple earned more than $109 million, according to an NPR report. A large portion of that income came from Bill's speaking engagements. Since leaving the White House, the former president reportedly has earned $106 million from speaking fees, a 2013 CNN report notes.

In the last 15 months since Hilary left her post as secretary of state, she has made $5 million from a pricey speaking circuit.

When asked how the American public might view her hefty price tag for speaking appearances (reportedly $200,000 apiece), Hillary told Sawyer, “I thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.”

Diane Sawyer's full interview with Hillary Clinton airs June 9 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Watch a portion of the appearance below.

If a Republican candidate said it you would be fixated on it for years.

Only if I had nothing else to make fun of them about. Fortunately, that's never a problem.

Im still not comfortable with her tendency to go off the deep end. Maybe she gets tired and that leads to crazy talk. Or perhaps her fall had more damage than your side wants to address. She seems like a nice lady and you hate to see this sort of stuff happen to people.

People may have missed Chelsea's contribution to this matter. She claimed last week that money doesn't motivate her as she went to work for daddy's charity (pause to consider that for a moment) rather than industry. "I tried to care about money but couldn't"

http://m.nydailynews.com/news/politi...icle-1.1840138

She lives in a 10.5m Manhattan penthouse with her hedge fund hubby. The disconnect they have about their wealth is breathtaking.

But obviously they could easily go make a bazillion dollars from speaking engagements and books, which they did, so now they're rich.

WHY the hell she wants to be President I honestly don't know... God knows Chelsea will inherit a whole lot less if she wins.

By 2001, Bill Clinton had made $200,000 per annum for eight years while paying nothing toward his housing or upkeep, and, in addition to the extraordinarily lucrative speaking gigs that American ex-presidents are now to expect, he had a lifetime of pensions and benefits to look forward to. (David Graham points out that, in the last 14 years, he has received nearly $16 million from the government.) By the end of the year in which he left office, the couple had made $16 million and enjoyed between $5 and $30 million in assets. By 2004, they had $50 million to their names. And by 2014, Clinton had become the highest-earning former president in America’s history, with net assets of nearly $200 million. Being smart sorts, the couple knew full well that this was coming, which is why in 1999, with their apparently destructive legal bills still racking up, they bought a $6 million house in Chappaqua, N.Y., so that Hillary could legally run for the Senate. One suspects that if the Clintons had been genuinely worried that their legal fights might bankrupt them, they would not have done this, nor would friend Terry McAuliffe have agreed to loan them $1.3 million toward its purchase.”

Like who? The ones who champion the repeated failures of trickle-down economics? The ones who consider a 2% tax increase to the top 1% to be Stalin-esque socialism? The ones who consistently fight to keep others from getting the same benefits and opportunities they received? I assume you mean them.

You want to trash her for disconnected, or stupid, or splitting hairs, fine. But she wasn't lying. That's one thing that needs to be admitted.
