In 90 Mins, Clinton Earns Nearly 5X What The Average American Makes In A Year

- October 11, 2015

After Leaving The Obama Administration, Clinton “Commanded Huge Fees As A Paid Speaker” Until “Just Weeks Before Her Presidential Announcement.” “After she left her post, Hillary Clinton herself commanded huge fees as a paid speaker. She was paid as much as $300,000 to speak at public universities, drawing backlash at times, though she generally donated those funds to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Clinton continued to deliver paid speeches until just weeks before her presidential announcement. Within the last year, she spoke to a scrap metal conference in Las Vegas, a major bank in Canada and the American Camp Association in Atlantic City.” (Rosalind Helderman and Anne Gearan, “Clintons Earn More Than $25 Million In Speaking Fees Since January 2014,” The Washington Post, 5/15/15)

Over The Past Two Years, Clinton Herself Made Between $200,000 And $300,000 For A Single 90 Minute Paid Speaking Events. “Hillary Clinton is making gobs of it these days. UCLA paid her $300,000 for a speech in March.  She is making millions off the publication of her new book. Private companies and trade groups are paying her a reported $200,000 per speech.” (Peter Nicholas, “Why Hillary Clinton Wants Big Speaking Fees,” The Wall Street Journal, 6/30/14)

With The Average American Worker Making Under $50,000 A Year, Clinton Earns In 90 Minutes Over 4 Times What The Average Worker Does In A Year. (Current Population Survey Table P-43, United States Census Department, Accessed 4/15/15; Peter Nicholas, “Why Hillary Clinton Wants Big Speaking Fees,” The Wall Street Journal, 6/30/14)

The Clinton Household Had An Income Of At Least $16.7 Million Was 327 Times The Median American Family Income In 2012. “As we reported recently, according to their 2012 income disclosed in government forms, the Clintons made at least $16.7 million in income that year, largely from Bill Clinton‘s speeches. That total is based on income disclosed in forms that provide income ranges, and the $16.7 million total uses the minimum amount from each stated range.” (Tim Hanrahan, “Clintons’ Income May reach Top 1% Of The 1%,” The Wall Street Journal, 6/27/14)
