Hillary: We Must “Topple” this 1 Minority Group
If you were asked why the U.S. economy is struggling, what things would you point to? The massive amounts of public and private debt? Or perhaps the bloated social welfare programs that pay Americans to do nothing?
Hillary Clinton doesn’t point to any of those things. Rather, she points to the wealthiest 1 percent. In her populist worldview, they are the anchor dragging our economy down.
In a meeting with economists this year, Mrs. Clinton intensely studied a chart that showed income inequality in the United States. The graph charted how real wages, adjusted for inflation, had increased exponentially for the wealthiest Americans, making the bar so steep it hardly fit on the chart.
Mrs. Clinton pointed at the top category and said the economy required a “toppling” of the wealthiest 1 percent, according to several people who were briefed on her policy discussions but could not discuss private conversations for attribution.
Still, Mrs. Clinton will pitch that “toppling” with a very different style from Ms. [Elizabeth] Warren, a bankruptcy expert whose populist message has been laser-focused on holding Wall Street accountable. Mrs. Clinton will present proposals for changes in the tax code as a way of also investing in education, infrastructure and communities.
But wait, how much does it take to qualify as one of the wealthiest 1 percent?
According to Pew Research, “America’s wealthiest 1 percent had at least $2,385,306 to their names.” Okay, so a little over $2 million gets you in the door.
So how much do the Clintons have?
As I reported in a previous article, the Clintons collected a minimum of $136.5 million during the 11-year period from 2001 to 2012.
I think it’s safe to say that the Clintons are part of the 1 percent that Hillary is so eager to “topple.” Hey, here’s an idea… maybe she can start by toppling herself!
Clearly, Hillary is as hypocritical and delusional as politicians come. Just how bad do you think she would be as president? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
