In fundraising pitch, Hillary Clinton says Bill will match donations
WaPo ^ | 12/24/13 | Philip Rucker

Posted on 12/25/2013 9:17:15 AM PST by ColdOne

Hillary Rodham Clinton fired off an end-of-the-year fundraising solicitation to supporters of her family’s charitable foundation – and she offered an intriguing pitch.

Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, will personally match every tax-deductible donation collected between now and Dec. 31, dollar-for-dollar.

So this is how they use tax avoidance to fund Chelsea Victoria Hubbell Clinton-Mezvinsky’s salary to buy that $10m NYC condo?

There was a time, I’m told, when public service was an effort of commitment to community and country. Now it seems that it is a pathway to not only bountiful wealth, but immunity from most of the laws that productive Americans live by.

Is that one of the promises he intends to keep, or is this like the “middle class tax cut” promise?

IIRC supporters have paid every dime of all of Clinton's court-levied fines and lawsuit losses (e.g., lies about Paula Jones). this is a wiki graffiti link about it. I did not read it preferring to trust my memory more than liberal-bias history.

For example: ". . . a California conservative commentator, became [a] press spokesperson [and immediately started] using the press to attack Clinton . . . ."

My point.. Bill Clinton will not us his own money.. he will get it from supporters.

So, you give $10 to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton pays himself $10 and gives ten of it back to the foundation. The foundation then pays Chelsea the other $10. Is that how it works?

The Clintons should be in jail with another 20 years to go on their sentence. W was asked about all the Clinton shenanagins and his response was “I think we should move on.” That was the signal to every democrat in the country that they would never be prosecuted for anything. Clinton started his foundation. Gore started selling “carbon credits”. And the Chicago Machine went to work.

The Charity Navigator gives them a pretty mediocre review as well.

How does a man that has never held a private sector job, Never owned or ran a business become so fabulously wealthy? To paraphrase a good man and better than average President, Harry S. Truman: ‘To become wealthy in public service, you have to be a crook.” Damn, old Harry answered my question before BillyJeff was even of of shorty pants.

So however much is donated it will amount to about one tenth of what they took from the charity.

Suggest you get this spiffy bumper sticker early as supply levels are dropping faster than Willie's pants in a room full of interns!

The most corrupt political couple in American history.

The both of them ought to be behind bars (at the least) or swinging from the gallows (best case). These two toxic parasites have bored deep into America's central nervous system, hollowing it out, and having shat all over it, causing further infection and ultimately death from within.
