Have you noticed how people go to Washington, DC to be supposed public servants and then become fabulously rich?

Since leaving the Obama White House, Joe Biden, who supposedly identifies with average folks, has seen his bank accounts grow considerably.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

WaPo: Biden’s Had ‘An Explosion of Wealth’ Since Leaving White House

New reporting from the Washington Post details how former vice president Biden has earned millions of dollars since leaving the White House in what the Post described as “an explosion of wealth.”

Biden’s newfound wealth since leaving public office has mostly come from paid speeches, some of which earned him as much as $200,000, and book deals. The book deal for his 2017 memoir Promise Me, Dad was reportedly worth $8 million and covered three books from Biden and his wife, of which two have been published.

The former vice president’s campaign said he has given fewer than 50 paid speeches in the years since serving alongside President Obama but declined to give further details to the Post about how much he made from these speeches. Four contracts unearthed by the Post show Biden making between $150,000 to $200,000 per speaking appearance…

During his 36-year career in the Senate, Biden consistently referred to himself as the least rich Senator in the chamber. His new wealth runs “the risk of cutting against a core message of his campaign: that unique among the presidential candidates, he can connect with and represent the middle class,” the Post wrote.

Even some people on the left are pointing out Biden’s hypocrisy.

This is from VOX:

Joe Biden has been talking about income inequality a lot lately — to his rich donors

Over seared ahi tuna, langoustine tail, cocktails, and caviar, in settings ranging from the home of a former Boston Red Sox CEO, to a Las Vegas casino, to the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan, Joe Biden’s donors have been listening to the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination explain that everyday people feel left behind.

The former vice president has been talking to rich people about income inequality a lot lately.

“People feel like they’re being completely left out and they are,” Biden said during a recent fundraiser at the Washington, DC, home of a former ambassador, to a group that included lobbyists and former Sens. Chris Dodd and Evan Bayh. “We just stopped talking to these folks.”

Democrats have completely lost touch with America’s middle class.
