Barack Obama - $400,000
George W. Bush - $175,000
Jimmy Carter - $50,000
These are their fees per speech. Gerald Ford was the first to charge a fee at $40,000, and before him Harry Truman refused a speaking fee as exploitative.
Nancy Pelosi - $75,000 to $150,000
This is not capitalism. These people are crooks.
In 2003, I attended the Cornell commencement. Did the school pay Clinton his fee? Not long ago, Pelosi was on stage at Georgetown. Did the school pay her a fee?
