While Hillary Clinton poses as a class warrior on the campaign trail and calls for higher taxes on the rich, she and Bill hypocritically avoid the same taxes she claims the wealthy should pay.
Contrary to claims that they left the White House "dead broke", since 2001 the Clintons have earned over $186 million in taxable income by cashing in on their powerful connections.
In 2014 alone they brought in over $20 million with a substantial portion coming from paid speeches before special interests.
If Hillary Clinton believes so strongly that the wealthy aren't paying their "fair share," she should set an example for other millionaires like herself and pay the IRS the taxes she would owe under her tax proposals. This comes out to $4,687,898.56 dating back to 2001.
Note that this balance does not include the money the Clintons have shielded from the IRS by gaming the tax system over the years. Whether it was the improper use of interest deductions on their Whitewater real estate loans, or their current use of real estate loopholes to avoid fully paying the estate tax, the Clintons' can no longer hide their hypocrisy.
Make the check payable to the United States Treasury.
