Clinton’s Finally Release Post White House Tax Returns … Bill & Hillary Made $109 Million Since Bubba was President
The long wait is over. The Clinton’s have finally released their tax returns following Bill Clinton leaving the office of the President of the United States. If you took the under of $100 million, you lost. Boy, this makes one really want to donate their hard earned money to a political candidate. What is wrong with this picture?
This is rather ironic or is it pathetic? On the very day that Hillary Clinton announced that she proposed creating a cabinet-level position devoted to ending poverty, Billery reported earning more than $109 million over eight years. Maybe Hillary can pay for this new cabinet level position’s salary out of her own pocket. If they wanted to end poverty, why don’t they just let everyone be able to be a politician. Seems like its a rather easy get rich quick scheme at the expense of “We the People”.
Can you say Jackpot!!! Of course it is not lost that the Clinton’s released the data late on a Friday afternoon to avoid the news cycles. Who do they think they are Aruba? The Clinton’s reported making 20.4 million in 2007 alone. Are these the same people that had set up a legal trust fund and begged people to donate to help Bill & Hillary pay for their many legal issues while “Bubba” was President. One might think that they may want to reimburse the many who were foolish enough to donate.

UPDATE I: Charity Begins at Home or at least to the Clinton family Foundation … All charitable donations in ’06 were to Clinton Foundation
Isn’t this special and self-serving. Giving charitable donations to yourself for the tax relief implication and then giving out those contribution after one declares a presidential candidacy in a show of good will. So much for giving to charity, just because its the right thing to do.
During that time, the Clintons paid $33.8 million in federal taxes and claimed deductions for $10.2 million in charitable contributions. The contributions went to a family foundation run by the Clintons that has given away only about half of the money they put into it, and most of that was last year, after Mrs. Clinton declared her candidacy.
