Former President Bill Clinton has got to pay those bills. That's why he's giving a speech this week in Atlanta at the American Institute of Architects meeting in Atlanta.
"Former President Bill Clinton will be paying the family bills in Atlanta on Thursday, with a speech to an annual gathering of the American Institute of Architects," reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, suggesting that Clinton will be paid for his speech.
Clinton recently justified his expensive private speeches by saying, "I've gotta pay our bills."
Clinton will be giving the day-one keynote address. His bio reads:
President Bill ClintonMay 14, 10:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.Hall A3
Join us May 14 for a keynote address by President Bill Clinton, Founder of the Clinton Foundation, and 42nd President of the United States.
President Bill Clinton
William Jefferson Clinton was the first Democratic president in six decades to be elected twice – first in 1992 and then in 1996. Under his leadership, the country enjoyed the strongest economy in a generation and the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs.
After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the Clinton Foundation with the mission to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote health and wellness, and protect the environment.
In addition to his Foundation work, President Clinton has served as the top United Nations envoy for the Indian Ocean tsunami recovery effort and as the UN Special Envoy to Haiti. Today, the Clinton Foundation is supporting economic growth, capacity building, and education in Haiti.
President Clinton was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas. He and his wife Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton have one daughter, Chelsea, and live in Chappaqua, New York.
There's a $50 fee to attend the speech.

Now that the liberals who were once insurgent voices in the undergraduate student body are the presidents and deans of American universities, they’ve decided it is high time for those universities to reevaluate their outdated devotion to freedom of speech. The proper modern university, they believe, is a serenity-zone where students can meditate on the evils of capitalism undisturbed – unless they accidentally wander into Texas Tech’s free-speech gazebo.

Hillary Clinton is planning to announce a run for president very soon, but in the meanwhile, she's continuing to give high dollar paid speeches. The former secretary of state delivered one last week in California to woman eBay executives.
Bibi Netanyahu’s heroic speech. Mar 16, 2015, Vol. 20, No. 26 • By RUTH R. WISSE
On the day that Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu was leaving for the United States to give what the Washington Post called “the most important speech of his life,” my grandchildren were watching Big Hero 6. When I heard the smallest of the animated characters say, “We didn’t set out to be super-heroes, but sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned,” it sounded like the tagline for Bibi’s launch as hero of the free world.

We'll all be discussing for quite a while the substance, context, and implications of yesterday's speech by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. I thought I might just offer a personal note on what most struck me yesterday, sitting in the gallery of the House of Representatives.

Sometimes a speech is just a speech. Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech about Iran policy on March 3 will not be his first address to Congress. It will make familiar, if important, arguments. One might assume that, like the vast majority of speeches, it would soon be overtaken by events in Israel and the United States and the world.
