Haven’t you always been told that the Democratic Party is the party of the working class and the Republican Party is the party of the rich? When you look at what many of the Democratic politicians do, you really have to question if they are the party of the working class.
Look at the Obamas for example. Since moving into the White House, they have milked American taxpayers for hundreds of millions of dollars for their many vacations. We’re even paying for the room and board of Michelle’s mother who lives in the White House with them.
Another example is Hillary Clinton, a likely candidate for the Democratic 2016 presidential nomination. Remember a couple months back when Hillary announced that she really wasn’t that well off financially? If that’s true, then what is she doing with all of the money she makes publicly speaking.
As you read what Hillary’s speaking demands are, remember that the median household income in the US is around $44,000 per year.
Hillary’s demands include:
“* Round-trip transportation on a chartered private jet ‘e.g., a Gulfstream 450 or larger jet,’ plus round-trip business class travel for two advance staffers who will arrive up to three days in advance.
* Hotel accommodations selected by Clinton’s staff and including ‘a presidential suite for Secretary Clinton and up to three (3) adjoining or contiguous single rooms for her travel aides and up to two (2) additional single rooms for the advance staff.’
* A $500 travel stipend to cover out-of-pocket costs for Clinton’s lead travel aide.
* Meals and incidentals for Clinton, her travel aides and advance staff, as well as all phone charges.
* Final approval of all moderators or introducers.”
On top of that, she generally asks for $300,000 for each speaking event. In 2012, Bill Clinton was paid $250,000 to speak at the UNLV Foundation dinner. Hillary was only paid a mere $225,000 even though she asked for the full $300,000.
Does this sound like she represents or even relates to working class Americans? If this is ‘not well off’, then how can she possibly understand the everyday struggles of the majority of working Americans? Like Obama and many other politicians, Hillary Clinton is out of touch with America and could not possibly work to help them.
