Chelsea Clinton Does Not Care About Money - Really

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Hillary and Bill Clinton, recently said in an interview that she doesn't care about money.   Why should she.   Chelsea is married to a millionaire.  It was reported that their wedding cost about $3 million.  So much for the Clinton's being "dead broke" when they left the White House.  Chelsea and her husband live in an $11 million condo in New York City.  You can bet that Chelsea's parents took advantage of the tax code and gave her $10 million tax free.  And of course, Chelsea will inherit her parent's fortune, reported to be more than $100 million dollars, today.  Of course, by the time both Hilly and Billy bite the dust, their fortune will be even more. 

Finally, Chelsea Clinton works for the Clinton Foundation, no doubt collecting a very big salary.  Now, there is nothing wrong with any of this.   It is the American Dream.  The Clinton's, including Chelsea, came from nothing in Arkansas and have used their connections to become multi-millionaires.  Matter of fact, it is surprising that they are not greedy, evil Republicans given their "hard work" growing wealthy.  

Hilly and Billy get about $200,000 for an hour speech, more than the average American earns working in four or five years.  And, both Hilly and Billy have gotten millions of dollars in advances for their books.  To be clear, the Clinton's, including Chelsea, have lived a very privileged life for more than 40 years.   So, it is easy for Chelsea not to care about money, when she has had it her entire life through no fault of her own.   The reality is that the Clinton's have been living off the American taxpayer, one way or another, for years.
