Hillary Clinton said they were heavily in debt; Clintons real new worth set at $100 MILLION

We could live so long to be as broke as Bill and Hillary Clinton. In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, Hillary Clinton said that she and her husband were charging $200,000 on average for speeches because they were seeped in debt when they left the White House. In fact, the Clintons are by far the wealthiest first family still alive in America.

'We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,' Hillary Clinton said. 'We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education . You know, it was not easy.'

"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Hillary Clinton said. "We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education . You know, it was not easy."

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to financial disclosure statements, the Washington power couple has made more than $155 million since 2001.

"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Clinton said. "We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education . You know, it was not easy."

Being "out of touch" after the comment, she explained that she and Bill had racked up "something like $12 million" in legal fees by the end of Bill's presidency.

"Bill and I were obviously blessed. We worked hard for everything we got in our lives and we have continued to work hard. And we've been blessed in the last 14 years," Clinton told Good Morning America host Robin Roberts.

In truth, the first year Bill was out of office, the Clinton's made $12.3 million. In 2004 Bill locked down an unheard of $15 million advance for his autobiography "My Life." As of last year, he had made $106 million off of speeches.

His net worth as of last February was $55 million, and he has continued to make money off of speeches since.

Hillary Clinton has made roughly $5 million in speeches since leaving the State Department last year. She has also made more than $16 million in advances for her two memoirs, "In Living History," 2003, and "Hard Choices," 2014.

Hillary also earned approximately $2 million during her second career, first as United States Senator and later Secretary of State. Bill has also accrued $2.6 million of his White House pension.

Together, the couple has a net worth of $100 million or more.

It must be noted that all former presidents receive an annual pension based on how much they were paid while in office.

Jimmy Carter, who also left the White House broke, has made millions off of the 14 books he has written. But as of 2012 his net worth was only $7 million.
