Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will collect a $225,000 speaking fee from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in October, it emerged on Tuesday.

The massive expense was confirmed just weeks after the university formalized a 4 per cent tuition increase for each of the next four years. Rate hikes have nearly tripled tuition costs there since 2004.

Poor, broke Hillary needs the money... $50 million is just chump change...

Of course, that shows fiscally irresponsible such a person would be as president

The most amusing part of the story is the comments under it, especially the ones trying to defend her and saying that the criticism is just “Hillary bashing.”

I agree.

I disagree with ANYONE getting a fee or expenses to speak at a graduation. They should do it for the honor. Let those colleges split the money among the grads as a refund on their tuition for successfully completing their program.

The silver lining.....hillary has dug a hole so deep that any competent politician should be able to destroy her chances (if they want to)

Hey, that’s that capitalism that they despise so much.

As UNLV is a state university, it is about as capitalistic as a request to the feds for funding to study climate change.

UNLS has about 25,000 undergraduates. So it comes out to $10 a head for tickets. I think the students would prefer a coupon for the Golden Corral or to the multiplex a bit more for the money.

"Hey, that’s that capitalism that they despise so much."

That's probably more cronyism than capitalism given that it's a state school.

WHY IN THE HELL DO WE PAY PUBLIC “SERVANTS” TAXPAYER MONEY TO SPEAK AT TAXPAYER-FUNDED UNIVERSITIES?!?!?

Supposedly, it’s to enhance the educational experience. Fine. Pay their freight (room and board)... nothing else! Damn ingrates.

"I shall remember to pay it, to myself."
- Sydney Greenstreet in Casablanca

Every University is loaded up to the gills with government money, either directly or through the giant pool of money the government throws into the student-aid kitty, allowing schools to jack up their prices and blot up the spill.

So the government is paying a lot of money to Hillary, who has never not been "the government" at some level.

Who are we to complain? It's the government's money - they confiscated it from us under threat of imprisonment, fair and square.

as I recall, UNLV is a PUBLIC institution, paid for by the taxpayers

so not only are her speaking fees OBSCENE, but she’s still sucking huge sums of $$$ from the American taxpayers instead of going out and getting a job (or opening a hair salon) like normal Americans do

anyone willing to pay her $225,000 an hour (to NOT tell us the truth about what she’s done to us).... is buying future favors from her (not sexual favors, either, PERISH THE THOUGHT!)

this sucks!

Except 25,000 students will probably not attend nor will 25,000 people.

So it would work out to more than $10 per person.

I believe it is a commencement speech, so it is a limited audience...

You forgot the '/sarc' at the end...

If you were posting on some liberal site, they would say: Yes! Yes! We need to pay more money for tuition for speakers like!

An example would be the HUFF 'N PUFF Post (Huffington Post or whatever its name is) -- I like to call it just HUFF 'N PUFF cause that is what they do on that site...

How about some income equality. What is the average wage of Americans? Well she should get that for her speech just in deference to her principals. Give her a generous 25 bucks.

The Clinton girls are on a run. Hillary is dirt poor but getting $225K for a 20-minute speech, and Chelsea “doesn’t care about money.” Right AND left leaning Americans find that nauseating.
