Their pensions should be equal to the years they are president and how much they contribute....just like the rest of us. If they are of retirement age when they leave office then they can collect social security, if not then they can go back to work and save for their pension.
all these government house, senate, pres, positions forget they were meant to serve then go back to their regular jobs, not figure out a way to never work again!
Needs to be cut out completely, whoever heard of being paid for life after 4-8years of service. They do not need security or benefits. Same goes for congress, leave office get a job, but most have already taken enough money from tax payers they don't need to work. Why do they think they deserve all these perks for doing nothing.
I don't see why they don't eliminate it altogether. Once served they are supposed to go back to their own way of life especially if they are well off to begin with. We shouldn't have to pay for anything anymore. The average American citizen doesn't get that from their employers. Same goes for the rest of those in office. Get rid of career politicians also. They can go on Social Security like the rest of us.
I think the reduced amounts are still entirely too much. Why should we be subsidizing their office and staff expenditures at all? That should be their responsibility. They are retired from public service (and I use that term loosely!). Take your retirement and go home.
Well since they are in the right direction. Why not slash it by about 204,000..... in other words zero
None of our past presidents need a pension or secret service protection. These past presidents including Obama took the wage plus the corruption thus making them millionaires. All this needs to be dropped immediately. Oh yes - give them Obamacare and make them take social security instead of their fancy retirement which is well funded and well protected! Their retirement money needs to be repaid into SS.
Why do they need pensions, when they speak and get $500,000.00 each time. When pensions started they just retired like you and I now they are are Millionaires when they leave office.
Not only are the Clinton’s getting Bill’s pension for president but also for governor of Arkansas, Hillary’s pension for senator and also for Secretary of State. Talk about a racket
Let’s get serious about this, they don’t need a freaking penny from tax payers. These former presidents or politicians are millionaires! If they want to have an office and staff such office they should freaking pay for it out of their own pocket. Let’s give them a great welcome back to reality, you work and you pay for what you want to have or do. #zeropresidentialpensions #zeroofficebudget
