Give or take a buck, the median family income in the USA is $65,000. Keep in mind that “family” means, for the most part, mom & dad working for a full year.
- Hunter Biden made about this much money per month working for a company in the Ukraine.
- President Obama, after leaving office, made $40 Million since leaving office or, based on a 40 hour week for three years, worked about ten hours to make $65,000.
- After leaving office, Bill & Hillary Clinton, based on the same formula I used for President Obama, each worked eight and a half hours to make $65,000.
All while the average American family works and entire year to make $65,000. None of this is illegal. There is no outright corruption here. What there is, however, is a system that is rigged against the average American working class family.
Democrats are correct and stand on moral ground when they say we need to get big money out of politics and eliminate the horrible Citizens United decision. But Democrats need to do more than than this. Democrats need to set an example for the nation and not just get the big money out of politics, but agree to get big money out of their desires after leaving office and agreeing to change a system that is rigged so that some can make in a month, or a few hours, what an average family makes in a year.
