Clinton Family Values

Well, now we know just how badly Hillary Clinton wants to be president: she’s willing to not only pimp out arrange for her daughter to meet with and discuss matters with uncommitted superdelegates, she’s even willing to destroy her daughter’s career in the process.

“We also have to reward work more,” Clinton told a small group of Ohio residents today. “and by that, I mean, I have people in New York working on Wall Street as investment managers, as hedge fund executives. Under the tax code, they can pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes on $50 million dollars, than a teacher, or a nurse, or a truck driver in Parma pays on $50,000. That’s very discouraging to people.”

As ABC notes, Chelsea Clinton is currently taking time off from her job managing hedge funds to campaign for her mother.

This could represent a new peak in parent-child conflicts — “If you don’t follow my wishes in your career choice/get enough of your co-workers to donate to my campaign, I’ll run for president and jack the taxes on you and everyone like you!”

How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless parent…
