Hillary the Hypocrite Says Bleed the Rich, While Hiding Her Assets

Well, she can't hide that big er, ahem.....

Hillary Clinton said the following the other day during a presser with some reporters:
This is my opinion. I'm not speaking for the administration so I will preface that with very clear caveat. The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues, whether it's individual, corporate, whatever the taxation forms are.

OK, that would be fine...if HillRod and Bubba weren't funnelling money through a formerly secret foundation. Now, I am not talking about the Bill Clinton Presidential Library Foundation and Whorehouse. Nope, I am talking about the Clinton Family Foundation. This foundation was not disclosed until relatively recently but:
has enabled the Clintons to write off more than $5 million from their taxable personal income since 2001

Also, Hillary didn't list it on her disclosure forms as a Senator until called on it, which her office called a mere "oversight":
The Ethics in Government Act requires members of Congress to disclose positions they hold with any outside entity, including nonprofit foundations. Hillary Clinton has served her family foundation as treasurer and secretary since it was established in December 2001, but none of her ethics reports since then have disclosed that fact.

The foundation has enabled the Clintons to write off more than $5 million from their taxable personal income since 2001, while dispensing $1.25 million in charitable contributions over that period.

Clinton's spokesman said her failure to report the existence of the family foundation and the senator's position as an officer was an oversight. Her office immediately amended her Senate ethics reports to add that information late yesterday after receiving inquiries from The Washington Post.

Hmm...not only are they engaging in bribes to Senate candidates, but they are hiding millions in assets that could be taxed for the "greater good", as Mrs. Clinton is fond of saying....Hmmmm.....
