Remember when Hillary Clinton famously proclaimed her and Bill were “dead broke”.
Just to refresh your memory, because keeping track of all of Hillary’s lies is a daunting task.
“We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy. Bill has worked really hard. And it’s been amazing to me. He’s worked very hard.”
If $240 million in income since leaving the White House is dead broke, then I wish I was dead broke like Hillary.
What needs to be investigated is how the Clintons amassed such a fortune? It could not have anything to do with pay-to-play favors dished out via the Clinton Foundation…could it?
America knows that Donlad Trump is wealthy, so his tax returns should really be of no issue…but who would have guess that the Clinton’s were worth so much, especially since Hillary spent most of the decade as a US government official.
Via The Washington Times…
The Clintons have now released tax returns showing their income going back to 1977, and have the past nine years of returns currently posted on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign website, dating back to 2007, when Mrs. Clinton was still in the Senate.
All told, the couple earned $151.5 million over the past nine years, and some $238 million since they left the White House in 2001.
Mrs. Clinton has famously described herself as “dead broke” when they left the White House, saying they were in debt.
Also releasing a decade’s worth of tax returns Friday is Sen. Tim Kaine, Mrs. Clinton’s running mate.
He and his wife, Anne Holton, reported $313,441 in total income, and owed $63,626 in federal taxes. That gave them an effective tax rate of 20.3 percent. They have paid as little as 13.4 percent toward federal taxes, in 2009, and as high as 24 percent, in 2011.
