What Hillary Clinton and her husband, Bill, shell out just in local property taxes on two luxury homes ($104,303) is twice the income of an average middle class family that Clinton believes she dutifully represents. She is exceptionally disdainful of both fast food workers and the middle class.
Last year the couple made $30.5 million in income. Her net worth is $32,015,000.
Her book Hard Choices tome brought in $5 million to the chagrin of the publisher who gave her a $14 million advance. The limp, lame, ghosted volume turned out to be more a bomb than a bombshell. Nonetheless, Clinton decried the “cancer of inequality” while promoting her book. Inequity? The most inequitable element is Hillary herself.
“The Clintons are far from the ‘dead broke’ couple, as she has described, who left the White House saddled with debt after Bill Clinton’s presidency,” Karni and Taft wrote. “In fact, they now rank comfortably among the top one-tenth of the top 1 percent of earners.”
Since the beginning of the summer, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has been saddled by scandal. The New York Times bestseller Clinton Cash uncovered the web of millions in Clinton Foundation donations and speaking fees to Bill Clinton that came from corporations and governments that had business before Clinton’s State Department. Then there is the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s unprecedented use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state.
However, Hillary Clinton’s incessant scandals are but one reason why “she still struggles to sell herself as the candidate of everyday Americans,” according to Politico. “During the last two weeks of August, she took a break from a family vacation to do a quick campaign swing to rural America, then returned to the rented Hampton vacation property with a private beach and a 50-foot pool” at a rental cost of “$100,000.”
Hillary Clinton wings about the country in an ultra-luxurious and very private Dassault model Falcon 900B business jet that burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. The aircraft costs $5,850 per hour to rent. And she has used the same plane before, including on at least one trip for speeches that brought her $500,000 in fees.
