    Pissing away more money

    Supposedly our government, in its infinite wisdom, pays ex-presidents living expenses since 1958.  I guess Truman wasn't able or willing to go on multi million dollar speaking tours.


    If you read the article and add up the 5 living ex presidents, its almost $5million


    Granted $5 million is nothing when the Fed is closing in on $5 trillion in yearly expenditures, but $5mil still buys a lot of school lunches.


    Here's a thought, instead of porking up bills that provide emergency relief, how about paying for relief by cutting useless spending like paying the living expenses for millioniare ex-Presidents.


    Didn't Obama just sign a $70mil book deal?  Don't the Clintons have a billion dollar foundation?  Weren't the Bushes rich to begin with?  I'm certain one of them had the money to once own the Texas Rangers.  OK, maybe Jimmy Carter may need some help, but not $400K!!!!!


    Maybe this stupidity will end when Trump leaves office and some hate filled lefty remembers that ex-Presidents get millions to do nothing.  Nothing of importance anyway.
