Liberals love to preach about redistributing wealth through their class warfare rhetoric, all while living like the capitalists they all are.
Between Bernie Sanders’, and Hillary Clinton’s, lavish lifestyles and multiple homes, the evidence is overwhelming.
Liberals are frauds who will take your money in a heartbeat, while screaming about the benefits of giving money away to the government.
Former president Obama repeatedly made comments disparaging the wealthy, even saying, “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”
So what do you think, America? Should Obama continue getting paid six figures for making speeches?
Apparently, that sentiment only applies to us common folk.
The president that made his mark by implementing a disastrous national health program is now, just mere months after his leaving office, going to be paid by the healthcare industry to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars for a single speech.
That’s one huge unemployment check!
From Zero Hedge:
“What sources are telling FOX Business Network is that former President Obama, now less than 100 days out of office, has agreed to a speaking engagement during Cantor Fitzgerald’s healthcare conference in September,” FBN’s Gasparino said.
“We understand that he is going to be the keynote speaker for the lunch, and he’s going to receive a fee of $400,000. We should point out that that’s in line with what Hilary Clinton got… we should point out that Cantor will neither confirm or deny.”
The former Democratic community organizer and Illinois senator has focused his nearly 100 days out of office on relaxing at various locations around the globe and planning for his foundation’s library and community center in Chicago.
Some might say this speaking fee is about $399,999.99 too much. The sum he’s being paid for twenty minutes of his time is more than most families will make in a year.
It’s clear that Cantor Fitzgerald isn’t paying simply to hear Obama speak. This large sum is likely a legal bribe, a payoff for all Obamacare has done to make the company richer, and a down payment on future influence.
Cantor Fitzgerald is no stranger to this concept. Just last year, the company was caught running an illegal gambling and bookmaking business whilst laundering money.
Their company is merely paying their bill for special access and special legislation that benefited them.
