Shortly after Barack Obama delivered his first (free) speech today since leaving the White House in Chicago before an invitation-only crowd of college students, community organizers and other fans, Fox News' Charlie Gasparino reports that in what may be his first paid speaking arrangement, Obama will be paid $400,000 to speak at Cantor Fitzgerald's healthcare conference this September, setting the benchmark for how much an hour of the former president's time will cost going forward.
It's a Cantor Fitzgerald at a health conference come September. We all know what a disaster the Affordable Care Act was.

No one deserves 400k to speak especially after railing on about the supposed evil one percent, and the so called high cost of education.
400k speaking fees pretty safe bet to say is a big reason students can't afford to pay for college.
