Interesting, Bill is usually pretty politically savy but he's kicking a stinkball on this one. Drop it. Drop it now. It's a can't win argument......

Taxpayers will spend $944,000 to support Bill Clinton's lifestyle in 2014 as he claims he and Hillary are not 'out of touch' because they 'talk to people in our town' "Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are worth between $10 and $50 million, according to their financial disclosure forms – but taxpayers will still pony up nearly $1 million this year to fund their post-White House lifestyle.

Like the three other living former presidents, Jimmy Carter and the two George Bushes, Clinton receives a $201,000 annual pension. But that just scratches the surface of the government benefits he shares with his wife Hillary.

The total for 2014 also includes $157,000 for staff salaries and benefits, $414,000 for office space and $9,000 for phone bills.

In all, The Washington Post first reported, taxpayers are providing Clinton with $944,000 in post-presidential pay and benefits.

That tab was $1.28 million in 2002, the year after he left office, according to a Congressional Research Service report cited by the Post and the Washington Free Beacon..............."

Let us all remember this is the same couple that STOLE silver out of the Whitehouse on their way out.


Who also took a deduction for donating his underwear to charity. But Hillary says they pay their taxes unlike the 1%ers.

One other little note of Record. ...
The reason “we were broke when we left the whitehouse” was because he was FINED by a federal judge something like 85k for intentionally misleading a Federal Court during a civil suit. He also paid off Paula Jones to the tune of something like 200k.

Be sure to remind all of those facts when the Clintons cry poverty!
