UNLV Students Want Hillary Clinton To Donate Fee
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will collect more than $200,000 for a speech organized by the UNLV Foundation in October. And students, who have faced escalating tuition costs, want her to refund the money back to the foundation, which supports the university. Student Body President Elias Benjoullon wrote a letter to Clinton asking her to donate the fee. Clinton has said that all speaking fees go to the Clinton Foundation, which also funds charitable work.
So is it right for Clinton to pocket so much money when students face a 17 percent increase in tuition? Or should students focus their attention on the bigger issue of tuition increases, instead of focusing on Clinton's fee?
