Berkeley Pays Clinton Pal $240K a Year to ‘Teach’ About ‘Income Inequality’

The University of California-Berkeley is paying long-time Clinton apologist Robert Reich $240,000 a year to teach one little class about so-called “income inequality.” (Reich also makes $100,000 per speech.)

I guess it could be a direct, object lesson, right? I mean, here is a guy who does practically nothing yet he makes $240K a year off the backs of taxpayers at Berkeley. What could be a better object lesson on income inequality?

The University of California-Berkeley pays former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich $240,000 a year to teach one class about the scourge of income inequality and attend Occupy Wall Street rallies. (He also makes up to $100,000 per speech.)

Reich, a millionaire, is very concerned about rich people who, unlike him, don’t really deserve their fortunes. “What someone is paid has little or no relationship to what their work is worth to society,” he wrote in a recent blog post, without any apparent irony.

Wonder what Reich thinks about Paul Krugman, who draws a $225,000 annual salary from the (publicly funded) City University of New York, and doesn’t even have to teach a single class?

This is hypocrisy at its best (or worst, as the case may be).

These left-wing hypocrites fly around the country telling all who will listen that it is evil for some people to make more money than others yet here they are making themselves into millionaires in the doing.

There couldn’t be a better example of hypocrisy. Al Gore fits into this mold, too. So do all the Clintons.
