Bill Clinton has collected more than $17 million from taxpayers since leaving office, more than double that of fellow Democrat Jimmy Carter.

Clinton received nearly $1 million from the United States government in the 2015 fiscal year to pay for his pension, his staff, and more than 8,000 square feet of office space in New York City, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. The Clintons earned more than $10 million in 2015, according to tax returns released to the public.

The Clinton family has amassed a fortune in the form of six-figure speaking fees, mansions in New York and D.C. worth an estimated $8.2 million, and some of the largest multi-million dollar book deals in history since leaving the presidency “dead broke” in 2001.
