Bill:"This inequality problem bedevils the entire country. But it is not just a moral outrage, it is a horrible constraint on economic growth and on giving people the security they need to tackle problems like climate change."
Earlier in 2013 Hillary Clinton re-entered private life after stepping down as Secretary of State. Hillary quickly earned a cool $14 million advance for future book with publishing company Simon & Schuster. She is also starting to hit the private speech circuit and earning six figures for her time.
In speech Hillary gave upon receiving an award at her Yale Law fortieth anniversary, she said that America must "reverse this tide of inequality that is eating away at the social fabric of our country."
