Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who along with her husband, has made an estimated $100 million since leaving the White House, claims she struggled to make ends meet since leaving the White House. *Sheds Tear*
What is most obnoxious about her comments to ABC news is that you have to " make double the money because of obviously taxes." While I completely agree with her statement implying tax rates are too high, I am not running for president and advocating higher taxes.
Clinton's full comments from Hot Air:
“If you — you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt,” Clinton told ABC’s Diane Sawyer after being confronted with the fact that she makes a ridiculous amount of money on the speaking circuit.
“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,” she added.
“First of all, we had to pay off all our debts,” Clinton continued, “which was, you know, he had to make double the money because of obviously taxes and then pay off the debts and get us houses and take care of family members.”
Let's all take a moment and offer our condolences to the Clintons for their plight.
