Hillary Clinton, whose net worth is $21.5 million dollars: We Are Not “Truly Well Off”
No wonder people living in the most prosperous part of world feel like they’re truly poor when people like Hillary Clinton says she’s not ‘ truly well off’ in America with millions of dollars at her disposal.

Hillary Clinton’s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book “Hard Choices,” which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won’t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they’re not “truly well off.”
“They don’t see me as part of the problem,” Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, “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.”
Clinton earned an $8 million advance for her 2003 book “Living History” and her publisher is rumored to have paid “significantly more” for “Hard Choices.” Additionally, Clinton reportedly earns $200,000 in speaking fees each time she makes a speech. Bill Clinton has reportedly made over $100 million in speaking fees since leaving office.
While the wealthy spew their sob stories of being millionaires instead of billionaires, Americans are suffering from mental poverty at the hands of elites who continue to impose free food and free money upon them, enslaving them to a life poverty and dependence. Imagine what it would be like to have Hillary Clinton as your President telling you that you are suffering with your iPhone 4 instead of iPhone 5 and tri tip instead of kobe beef. Once this ideal of poverty and ingratitude is completely adopted, the entire nation will be easy to control.
