Obama To Clinton: Show Me The Money

Barack Obama told members of the press yesterday that Hillary Clinton should release the Clinton's tax returns so the public can see where she got the $5M she just gave to her campaign.

Obama: "I'll just say that I've released my tax returns. That's been a policy I've maintained consistently. I think the American people deserve to know where you get your income from. But I'll leave it up to you guys to chase it down."

Last year's tax return for the Obamas show a joint income of $991,000, including his senatorial salary and his wife's salary as a hospital administrator. The Clintons have only released broad ranges of assets, which are estimated between $10M and $50M.
