Clinton's Hypocrisy On Student Debt

- January 25, 2016

Today, Hillary Clinton Attacked Colleges For "Unjustifiable" Increases To Tuition Rates. CLINTON: "Because I think we have two levels of problems. We have the high cost of college. Tuition has gone up faster than any other service in the last decade. Some figures say that it's increased 40 percent. That is just unjustifiable." (Hillary Clinton, Remarks To The Jewish Federation Of Greater Des Moines, Des Moines, IA, 1/25/16)

UNJUSTIFIABLE? CLINTON HAS CHARGED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO SPEAK AT COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, SOME WHICH WERE RAISING TUITION RATES

Clinton Has Been Paid Hundreds Of Thousands Of Dollars By At Least 8 Universities, "Sparking A Backlash From Some Student Groups And Teachers At A Time Of Austerity In Higher Education." "At least eight universities, including four public institutions, have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hillary Rodham Clinton to speak on their campuses over the past year, sparking a backlash from some student groups and teachers at a time of austerity in higher education." (Philip Rucker and Rosalind S. Helderman, "At Time Of Austerity, 8 Universities Spent Top Dollar On Hillary Rodham Clinton Speeches," The Washington Post , 7/2/14)
  • Clinton's High-Dollar Speaking Fees Will Become A "Political Liability" As "Democrats Have Made College Affordability A Central Plank Of The Party's Agenda." "Clinton's six-figure campus speaking fees could become a political liability for her in the 2016 campaign given that President Obama and other democrats have made college affordability a central plank of the party's agenda." (Philip Rucker and Rosalind S. Helderman, "At Time Of Austerity, 8 Universities Spent Top Dollar On Hillary Rodham Clinton Speeches," The Washington Post , 7/2/14)
Students Were The Biggest Losers When Clinton Visited Their Campus As They Had To Enter A Lottery To Obtain Tickets To See Clinton Live. "Organizers faced criticism that more students could not attend, particularly after an early morning event to allow students to enter a lottery for one of 413 free tickets turned into a shoving match. But students without tickets were able to watch a live stream of the event in an overflow location, Renaud said." (Rosalind Helderman And Philip Rucker, "Plans For UCLA Visit Give Rare Glimpse Into Hillary Clinton's Paid Speaking Career," The Washington Post , 11/26/14)

Clinton Angered Students As She Travelled In Style And Banked a Six-Figure Payday From UNLV As Tuition Increased 17 Percent

Last Year, Hillary Clinton Received A $225,000 Speaking Fee From UNLV . "Clinton is getting paid $225,000 for the speech, a fee that prompted UNLV student leaders to request that she donate some or all of the money to the university. Instead, the money will go to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, which supports programs on global health, climate change and opportunities for women and girls." (Laura Myers, "Hillary's UNLV Speech Open To Press," Las Vegas Review Journal, 10/8/14)
 
Clinton's Contract For Her UNLV Keynote Included A List Of "Lavish Travel Requirements" And Insists That There Be No Recording Of Her Speech. RON CLAIBORNE: "More details about Hillary Clinton's lavish travel requirements for a speaking engagement at a college in Nevada. A document obtained by the Las Vegas Review Journal show that Clinton received $225,000 to speak at a fundraiser in October-this coming October at the University Of Nevada, Las Vegas. Her contract also requires that she gets a private jet to travel and a presidential suite the hotel of her choice. Clinton also requires that there be no recording of her speech and that the only permitted record of what she says made by a stenographer whose transcription will be given only to Hillary Clinton." (ABC News' "Good Morning America," 8/18/14)

ABC Reporters Mock And Laugh At Clinton's Extravagant Travel Demands

  • Clinton Also "Insists On Staying In The 'Presidential Suite' Of Luxury Hotels That She Chooses" And Jetting Around In A "$39 Million, 16-Passenger Gulfstream G450 Or Larger." "She insists on staying in the 'presidential suite' of luxury hotels that she chooses anywhere in the world, including Las Vegas. She usually requires those who pay her six-figure fees for speeches to also provide a private jet for transportation - only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 or larger will do." (Laura Myers, "High Fashion, Expense For Hillary Travel,"Las Vegas Review-Journal , 8/16/14)
UNLV President Don Snyder Called Some Of Clinton's Demands "Distasteful." JON RALSTON: "I assume you've read, the RJ got the contract that Hillary had, I mean that thing looked like it was for Princess Grace or something like that. I mean pay for all the cell phone charges, get her rooms -presidential suite. That isn't the way you travel sir isn't it." DON SNYDER: "There's no doubt that some of the things in the contract I find distasteful." (KSNV's " Ralston Reports," 8/27/14)
