Hillary - Champion of Everyday Americans

[6/9/14] The Clintons say they left the White House in debt. Wait, what?

SAWYER: You've made five million making speeches? The president's made more than a hundred million dollars?

CLINTON: Well, you have no reason to remember, but

We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt. We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea's education.

You know, it was not easy. Bill has worked really hard and it's been amazing to me. He's worked very hard. First of all, we had to pay off all our debts. You know, you 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.

[6/26/14] How the Clintons went from 'dead broke' to rich, with $104.9 million for ex-president's speaking fees

(WaPo) -- Bill Clinton has been paid $104.9 million for 542 speeches around the world between January 2001, when he left the White House, and January 2013, when Hillary stepped down as secretary of state, according to a Washington Post review of the family’s federal financial disclosures.

Although slightly more than half of his appearances were in the United States, the majority of his speaking income, $56.3 million, came from foreign speeches, many of them in China, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom, the Post review found.

The financial industry has been Clinton’s most frequent sponsor. The Post review showed that Wall Street banks and other financial services firms have hired Clinton for at least 102 appearances and paid him a total of $19.6 million.

[6/23/14] Chelsea Clinton: I tried to care about money but couldn't

(NY Daily News) -- Hillary Clinton insists she isn't "well-off" and now daughter Chelsea, according to a recent interview, claims she couldn't care less about money.

I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn't.

she told Fast Company in an interview that ran in the magazine's May edition, explaining why she gave up lucrative gigs to join her family's philanthropic foundation.

The Clinton name likely opened doors for the political heiress, including an eye-popping $600,000 annual salary for an irregular stint as an NBC special correspondent, but Chelsea insists her work speaks for itself.

“I will just always work harder (than anybody else) and hopefully perform better,” said Clinton, who along with former banker husband Marc Mezvinsky, purchased a $10.5-million Gramercy Park apartment in 2013.

[6/21/14] Hillary Clinton: "We pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off"

(The Guardian) -- America's glaring income inequality is certain to be a central bone of contention in the 2016 presidential election. But with her huge personal wealth, how could Clinton possibly hope to be credible on this issue when people see her as part of the problem, not its solution?

But they don't see me as part of the problem (she protests) because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and we've done it through dint of hard work.

[5/16/15] Clintons earned at least $30 million since beginning of 2014

Hillary and Bill Clinton have earned at least $30 million since January 2014, including more than $25 million for delivering about 100 speeches, according to a government filing.

Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has earned more than $5 million in royalties for her book, "Hard Choices," which was published in June, according to the form. The Clintons' income puts them at the upper end of the top 0.1 percent of earners in the U.S.
