Did Hillary Clinton Plagiarize President Obama During 2016 Announcement Speech?

Posted: Jun 15, 2015 3:15 PM

In case you missed it over the weekend, Hillary Clinton relaunched her 2016 presidential campaign at event on Roosevelt Island, New York. During her speech, she said the following (bolding is mine): 

While many of you are working multiple jobs to make ends meet, you see the top 25 hedge fund managers making more than all of America’s kindergarten teachers combined. And, often paying a lower tax rate.

So, you have to wonder: “When does my hard work pay off? When does my family get ahead?”

During a May speech at Georgetown University, President Obama said this:

The top 25 hedge fund managers made more than all the kindergarten teachers in the country. So when I say that, I’m not saying that because I dislike hedge fund managers or I think they’re evil. I’m saying that you’re paying a lower rate than a lot of folks who are making $300,000 a year. You pretty much have more than you’ll ever be able to use and your family will ever be able to use. There’s a fairness issue involved here.

It's the same line.

Did Hillary Clinton plagiarize Obama's speech? Did the same speech writer produce both speeches? Or is this just a new liberal talking point? Either way, it proves once again that Hillary's ideas are from yesterday.

On another note, it should be mentioned that Hillary Clinton's daughter, Chelsea Clinton, is married to a hedge fund manager.
