Some ask "How did Biden become a Multi-Millionaire". Isn't that like asking "How did J. K. Rowling become a Multi-Millionaire"?

    Presidents and Vice Presidents, often make MILLIONS from Book deals,  speaking engagements,   Board member deals,  and so on  *after* leaving office. Not to mention his gov't salary  for nearly 50 years......$230,000 a  year,  as Vice President for 8 years. .......and $175,000 a year, as a Senator in his final years. 

    Not exactly chump change.

    It is because he was considered the poorest member of the Senate (because he didn't invest, and lived off his salary), but after serving under Obama for 8 years wrote a book and gave speeches that made him into a millionaire. But, let's remember, even today, the average Senator is worth close to $20 million, more than twice as much as Joe.

    Joe's income level/status for the entire time he had been in the senate, was reasonable for the his level of pay. He was not rich in terms of people like Pelosi or many others that seem to profit in their elected positions. That all changed while he was VP, much like Obama's own net worth changed by over 30 million during his time. That is unusual, the money tends to flow once they leave office. My 400 thou that was invested didn't turn into over 30 mil in 8 years.

    Dear, figure it out. Joe did not inherit money. Joe never owned a company. Joe never held a job. He was a senator. He was paid $175,000 a year (no, he never had a savings account & he never invested). Google Joe's accepting $3.5 Million from Moscow in 2015. Afraid to?

    Yep.

    What they can't understand is how someone who is rich can also have morals.

    It doesn't add up for them.
