Vote for Hillary Clinton because she is going to stand up to Wall Street.......Just as soon as she is finished counting the stacks and stacks and stacks of money Wall Street has piled up all around her.
It is not easy counting $35,000,000.00. It takes a bit of time but as soon as she is done she will be happy to tell you all about how she is going to stand up to Wall Street. She will tell you how she is not too cozy with them and there is nobody better to fix the problems on Wall Street than the lady who is drowning in money from Wall Street.
Hillary's top priority is the little guy who is NOT throwing money at her. That is who Hillary cares most about. Hillary stays awake at night trying to figure out how she can help the people who give her no money.
The money she has received won't taint Hillary at all ...No sir. Hillary is all about representing Main Street. (Oh damned.....She lost count again. Now she has to start counting again.) Hillary will be back with you shortly.
In the 18 months prior to announcing her second campaign for president, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination addressed private equity investors in California and New York, delivered remarks to bankers in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and spoke to brokers at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida.
Her efforts capped a nearly 15-year period in which Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, made at least $35 million by giving 164 speeches to financial services, real estate and insurance companies after leaving the White House in 2001.
The long and lucrative relationship between the Clinton family and the nation's finance industry has emerged as a key issue in her Democratic primary race. Her rivals, including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, accuse her of being too cozy with Wall Street and the industry she once represented as a senator from New York.
Exactly what the Clintons said in their speeches is hard to find. Although many of the remarks were given to large groups, reporters were typically barred. Often, Hillary Clinton's contract expressly prohibited the remarks from being broadcast, transcribed or 'otherwise reproduced,' according a copy of her agreement for one speech with the University of Buffalo.
Still, some details have trickled out.
When she addressed the National Multifamily Housing Council in April 2013, she focused on foreign affairs, including the Arab Spring and North Korea, and deflected questions about whether she would run for president, according to a post on the organization's website that has since been taken down.
Beyond the personal income, Clinton also has close political ties to the finance industry. Over the course of her career, from her 2000 run for the Senate to the two presidential campaigns, people working in the finance, insurance and real estate industries have given her campaigns about $35 million — more than donors from any other lines of work, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Her top two contributors over those years were employees from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, the center found.
Since her husband left the White House, the family's charity, the Clinton Foundation, has collected millions more from the industry, with companies such as Barclay's, Citigroup, Fidelity, HSBC and Goldman Sachs listed as donating as much as $5 million each.
