Yup-I Remembered It Right!
What bugged me: I had heard Hillary Clinton state on a video that 'she and Bill were dead broke when they left the White House'.
I'm not sure if the minimum had been raised above $200,000 per year for the President in 2001-but let's just for fun(ny) set it at $200,000.
Eight years equals 1,600,000.
If I had earned 1,600,000...I would be considered 'wealthy'.
How fiscally irresponsible must you be to earn that much and end up "Dead Broke"?
I'm not just rhetoricalizing-I really can't understand WHY this is part of the Clinton narrative.
To show that they are just 'common folk' who live hand to mouth with the rest of us?
Stage setting? Making it appear that Hillary has overcome so many obstacles on her journey?
I don't believe that they were 'dead broke' when they vacated the White House. If they were broke...they have somehow survived with bank accounts intact. And how!
