Bill and Hillary Clinton get paid a lot of money to talk.

The Democratic power couple earned just over $6.7 million in speaking fees last year, according to their 2015 tax returns.

 Hillary clearly dialed back her paid speaking activity last year. She earned only $1.5 million. That's way down from the $10.5 million she garnered from speaking fees in 2014 and the $9.7 million she made in 2013.

 The Clintons are millionaires, thanks to big businesses paying them sizable sums to speak at corporate events. It's a great way to make money, but it also comes with questions about whether the Clintons are too tied to corporate cash. 

The 2015 tax documents from the Clintons don't specify which businesses paid Bill and Hillary to speak. In the past, Wall Street has frequently paid Hillary to speak. Bernie Sanders, her democratic rival for the presidential nomination, challenged her to release video or text of the speeches she gave to big business. She never did.

"Nothing will change until we elect candidates who reject Wall Street money," a Sanders ad said, directly hitting Clinton.

 The Hillary Clinton net worth total of $31.3 million comes from analyzing her Public Financial Disclosure Reports. Bill Clinton has an estimated net worth of $80 million. That gives a combined Bill and Hillary Clinton net worth of $111 million dollars.

 Barack Obama’s net worth is $3.4 million. The Obama net worth sum comes from his required personal financial disclosures, plus his $400,000 salary as U.S. President.

 Combined Bill and Hillary Clinton net worth 2002: $4,077,000

Barack, how can you increase you net worth?  Just ask the Clintons.
