Oh, I Just Feel So Sorry For Hillary

From the New York Daily News:
Hillary Clinton claims that despite the significant wealth she and Bill have amassed since leaving the White House, they’re not “truly well off” compared to the richest of Americans.
“They don't see me as part of the problem," Clinton told The Guardian newspaper in response to a question about whether voters would see her as “credible” on the issue of income inequality, despite her vast personal wealth. “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.”
The eyebrow-raising comment, made during an interview with the British paper that ran late Saturday, follows another remark Clinton made about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House and could further propel the image of her being out of touch with Main Street as she continues to weigh a 2016 presidential run.
Since stepping down as Secretary of State in February 2013, Clinton has hit the lucrative public speaking circuit, reportedly charging up to $200,000 per appearance and earning upwards of $5 million in the process.
Bill Clinton reportedly often nets up to $300,000 per speech and has grossed a small fortune — between $10 million and $50 million, according to 2009 financial disclosure forms — since exiting the Oval Office.

Umm, Hillary, you are part of the problem.
And if you supposedly pay tax like ordinary Americans, which I highly doubt, then I would fire your accountants.
