Hillary Clinton claimed that, at the moment she and her husband were signing up for $18 million in book deals, that they were "dead broke."

Harry Reid (who lives in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel) said liberals are getting bullied by Republican billionaires but the Democratic Party "doesn't have many billionaires" behind it.

Joe Biden (family earnings: $407,000 last year plus a free house, driver, meals, etc.) claims he "I don't own a single stock or bond. . . . I have no savings accounts . . . I'm the poorest man in Congress." (Triple fail: Joe isn't poor, isn't in Congress and wouldn't be the poorest member of it if he were.)

Donald Trump once said there is a big difference between being broke and being poor.

Which reminds me of Mitt Romney and his financial "disclosure". I was actually hoping he'd run again in 2016, to see if he had such brass balls twice.

I hope Michelle Obama runs against Hillary. Michelle would be two for the price of one candidate.

Hillary Clinton $225,000 speaker fee
news.yahoo.com

"A Hillary Clinton speech in Las Vegas will cost the University of Nevada $225,000. That fee leaves Mitt Romney in the dust, and as voters shift their views of the presumed presidential candidate, it has focused more attention on her finances. There's nothing particularly unusual about Hillary Rodham Clinton's $225,000 fee for her upcoming speech at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. In March, the University of California at Los Angeles paid $300,000 for a similar event with Mrs. Clinton, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The difference is that some students – facing a 17 percent tuition hike over the next four years – have asked her to give the money back, and that is it now increasingly open season on Clinton.

Of course, speaking fees for former politicians is hardly stop-the-presses stuff, though Clinton appears to be doing rather well for herself. During his presidential run in 2012, Newt Gingrich was criticized for charging speaking fees of $60,000. The same year, Mitt Romney characterized his $374,000 in speaking fees from February 2010 to February 2011 as "not very much," which, of course, it isn't compared with Clinton's haul this year.

Recommended: How much do you know about Hillary Rodham Clinton? Take our quiz.

Then again, that's probably not the company Clinton would like to keep. While she has never quite managed her husband's populist touch (then again, who has?), she'd rather not be lumped in with a man whose popular image conjured up the world "plutocrat."

But that's what happened earlier this month when she said that her family was "dead broke" when it left the White House. More recently, she doubled down in trying to distinguish her family from the "truly well off" by noting that the Clintons pay taxes at a regular rate (about 31 percent)."

These politicians are not one of us regular people and I laugh every time that the republicans or any democrat trys to claim that.

What does Mrs. Clinton making big bucks on speaking engagements in 2014 have to do with her financial situation 15 years ago?

I find it hard to believe that anyone whose husband was making $200K a year with an all expense paid life can actually have been broke, but earnings today have nothing to do with the situation in 2000.

Does anyone know the actual context of the "we were broke" thing?

Their legal fees had bankrupted them while they were in public office. They had to work and make deals to pay their debts and save again.

If they didn't take the opportunities they had, they would have been penniless.

Obviously they had many ways to make money, so they went ahead and remedied the situation.

Also, Biden has been ranked poorest in congress. It's true.

The article posted is the one filled with lies.

"Their legal fees had bankrupted them..."

I forgot about that. No wonder POTUS salary doubled right after President Clinton left office.

The reason they had all of the legal fees is b/c Bill continuously sexually harrassed women that worked for him. Then he would have to pay out of court settlments. That's why they were "dead broke".

They lie so that the Hoi Polloi will will identify with them and vote for them - and of course 'boobus americanus' does just that. Yes it is pathetic, yet still it works.
