The Clinton campaign released the Clintons’ most recent tax returns on Friday. The couple reported earning $10.7 million in income in 2015, and claimed a tax liability of $3.6 million.
Not to note the obvious here or anything, but do you swallow anything Bill and Hillary report?
Via the Washington Times:
It’s a major drop in income from the more than $28 million they earned in 2014 and $27 million in 2013 — the two years after Mrs. Clinton left the State Department, but before she was running for president.
The Clintons’ federal taxes in 2015 amounted to 34.2 percent of their income, and their combined federal, state and local taxes were 43.2 percent. They donated 9.8 percent of their adjusted gross income to charity.
“Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine continue to set the standard for financial transparency as she releases her 2015 personal tax return and builds on the Clintons’ tradition of making their returns public since 1977 and Kaine releases 10 years of his returns,” said Jennifer Palmieri, the Clinton campaign communications director.
Look at those numbers again. (That’s okay. I’ll wait.) Sound “dead broke” to you? I’m not even going to get into the prudence of using “Hillary Clinton” and “financial transparency” in the same sentence. You can figure that one out for yourself. I do have one question, however. Did Ms. “Pay their fair share” pay hers?
so, how much did you make last year? Don’t forget. Hillary wants to be your “champion.” Because when the Clinton Foundation is flush, Americans are flush. Right?
Remember, the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. And “every day Americans (like this multi-millionaire) need a champion”… like …. Oh, never mind.
