Even if any of these presidents don't receive retirement from the US Government, their speeches alone can cover them for many years. They make good money writing books. This extra money can be used for other government programs. We have too much waste going on in DC and we need to clean house.
Agreed..it’s like back in Roosevelt times when these were needed. Now you’ve got book deals and speaking engagements they make a fortune so no they don’t need a presidential pension or atleast a large one I like the tapering off over the years of course capping the amount for staff needs..they want more staff they can pay out of their own pocket..if you make millions you can do that.
"The Clintons are a good example of this."
The Clintons are actually an awful example of this.Because they're not going to even need ANY money once the DOJ finally gets rolling in the right direction on their Uranium One/Clinton Foundation/CGI crimes. :-)
GOOD ABOUT TIME!! AND MY QUESTION WOULD BE: WHY IS BILL CLINTON GETTING A PENSION OF ANY BENEFITS AT ALL WHEN HE LIVED IN OUR WHITE HOUSE AS A PERVERTED RAPIST? HE SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COLLECT ANY BENEFITS AT ALL.
