Hillary Clinton: Bill and I Aren't 'Truly Well Off'
Breitbart ^ | 22 Jun 2014 | by DAN RIEHL

Posted on 06/22/2014 1:24:43 PM PDT by kingattax

If the recent firestorm over Hillary Clinton's claims of poverty upon leaving the White House with huge debt was meant to send the former First lady a message, clearly she didn't get it.

Seemingly unwilling to let go of the 'I'm one of the little people' meme for what would be a populist positioning as a White House candidate in 2016, today in The Guardian, she's all but crying poor, again.

The Clintons are overflowing with greed. 100 million isn’t enough for them.

How many millions will it take Hill, until you think you are well off, and what makes you think you deserve to be “well off” and BFD you have enough for yourselves and you are just jealous that your daughter is richer than you

This shows truly out of touch she is. With their millions they are not well off? Tell that to folks who are having trouble finding jobs. Tell that to people who are facing soaring food costs. Tell that to people who....

Well to be fair, 100 million doesn’t go as far as it used to!

She certainly has the Democrat party meme down pat.

Lie, lie some more, make up the biggest whopper possible, then lie some more and if that doesn’t work make up more lies.

At this point what difference does it make.

She is a shameless, Godless person which makes her a perfect Democrat.

Hey, I agree. since people with $111 million aren’t well off we should stop taxing anybody who makes that or below. Since nearly 100% of the people who have more than $111 million are Democrats, let them pay for everything.

That’s because the Clinton’s don’t think of themselves as
‘regular’ American’s. They compare themselves against the ‘Old Money’ American’s of the Robber Baron Class and their descendents.

Does she really think people believe that junk? I have come to the conclusion that all dems lie even if the truth is staring them in the face. Are they that stuck on stupid? People are having to decide which bills to pay and if they have money to buy food or medicine each month and she comes out with this nonsense. People vote for these characters and I will never understand that mentality.

I guess we need to elect her President then so that her and Bill can pay the rent and put food on the table. They are paupers dressed in rags, you know.

we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off

I think this is being misinterpreted by the author.

She is not saying she isn't truly well off, she is saying, accurately or not, that unlike other people in the "truly well-off" category, they pay ordinary income tax. Which I guess means they haven't made most of their money off capital gains.

I think I read that the average (or median...can't recall which) net worth of American households is around 100K.I'm not sure of the figures but I recall being shocked by how low it was.Ten bucks says that they're in the top 0.5% of American households in both net worth and annual income.Which,of course,would put them in the top 0.0001% of households worldwide.

Oh, she's vile, but there are plenty of people a head of her - Reid, BHO, etc.

IIRC, she got an $8M book advance when her hubby's final term was about to expire. Managed to get it into the year 2000, and not 2001, as her hubby's tax rates for the rest of us were set to skyrocket again...

The Clintons are overflowing with greed. 100 million isn’t enough for them.

Here's a calculation for you. In 2008, it was disclosed that the Clintons had made $109m since leaving the White House (mostly speaking fees, consulting fees, and book royalties). How much would that weigh?

Well, $109m is 10,900 standard bank bundles (100 $100 bills). A $100 bill weighs slightly less than a gram. So, throw in the bundle wrapper and say each bundle is 100 grams (paper wrapper, not the foil former Congressman William Jefferson, D-LA, used). That means the Clintons' fortune weighs 1,090,000 grams, or about 2,403 pounds. A long ton of money!

That was six years ago. They must be worth considerably more by now.

..."because we pay ordinary income tax...and we've done it through dint of hard work"

I just want to barf any time I hear a politician, especially a silver spoon in mouth Democrat, talk about "hard work." Most of these people never worked a day in their lives, especially the Clintons and the current occupier of the WH. She's a connected, scheming, conniving, communist bitch and it's all of her crony connections as First Lady that poured money all over her.

These days she gets paid $200,000 (not including expenses such as air travel and hotels) per speech these days to deliver something written by her lackeys.

"Hard Work" -- Bah!!

Romney paid 3 million in income tax. I guess he isn’t “well off” either.

"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," she says, letting off another burst of laughter.

Even she couldn't say it with a straight face.

Let's get this over once and for all Killary.

Post your 1040 and related forms, schedules and documentation for the last 10 years to your web site and let the public (sorry), your subjects decide for themselves.

If you were truly the smartest woman in the world, you would have included notarized copies of all this in your book.

Hillary seems to be suffering from a strange combination of delusions of grandeur and delusions of poverty.

But whatever her mental state is, Hillary has written a book that is breaking all records in the Amazon.com Five-Star *****(extremely approves) vs. One-Star *(extremely disapproves) categories.

No major autobiography has received so few Five-Star ratings as Hillary’s, currently at 220. In contrast, George Bush’s autobiography has received 1,018; Elizabeth Warren’s autobiography, 344; and Adolph Hitler’s ‘’Mein Kampf,’’ 248.

But the One-Star negative ratings for Hillary’s recent opus beggar all description, both in terms of numbers and the disgustedness of the reviewers. 599 negative One-Star reviews for a single book must be an Amazon first. Bush only got 66 such reviews; Elizabeth Warren, 28; and the Leader of the Third Reich, a measly 74.

Simon and Shuster made a huge mistake by publishing Hillary’s bomb. Will the Democrats make another huge mistake by nominating Hillary for president in 2016? Simon and Shuster will survive, but the Democratic party probably won’t if it anoints Hillary to lead its ticket in 2016.
