If there is one person who knows about “high class problems” it is Ron Klain.
The White House chief of staff, 59, has been in the political elite for almost four decades – and has done quite well.
A financial disclosure report released by the White House in March showed Klain had assets valued between $ 4.4 million and $ 12.2 million. By comparison, when Klain became Biden’s chief of staff in 2009, disclosure reports showed he had between $ 1.4 million and $ 3.5 million in assets.
Most notably, Klain received a salary of almost $ 2 million last year from Revolution LLC, an investment firm founded by AOL co-founder Steve Case, where Klain was executive vice president and general counsel.
Since arriving in Washington, Klain has worked with and for the who’s who of prominent Democrats, including Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
