If you had suspicions former President Barack Hussein Obama and his family were freeloading off our government, you were right. He preached ‘hope and change’, but it wasn’t for the nation and rather the benefits the White House would afford him and his family.
Moving ‘forward’ this ex-president didn’t see an end to his money supply…
The Washington Post writes: Former President Barack Obama is about to become the most expensive ex-president, costing taxpayers $1,153,000 next year, according to a new Congressional Research Service memo looking at the official allowances for the five living former chief executives.
His $1,153,000 budget request for 2018 is more than $100,000 higher than George W. Bush’s request for next year and nearly $200,000 more than Bill Clinton’s expected budget. George H.W. Bush is slated to get $942,000, while Jimmy Carter will get less than half that, at just $456,000.
All the money isn’t being spent just on the lavish vacations we all see in the tabloids; you know the ones where the Obamas are rubbing elbows with celebrities on yachts.
According to the Daily Wire: They are also renting a Washington, D.C.-based office space that is over 8,000 square feet for $536,000, all at the taxpayer’s expense.
His pension payment is the highest of all living presidents, costing Americans $236,000 a year.
Obama presented himself as a”‘man of the people” who understood the troubles of the middle and lower class. As more details about his past and behind-the-scenes activities came to light, this has proven to be false.
During Obama’s time as president millions of taxpaying dollars was spent on global warming research, gender studies, the insanely expensive vacations and targeting conservative organizations through the IRS and DOJ… all the while our nation continued to fall deeper and deeper into debt.
The Obamas may be out of the White House, but they’re still costing America money. Compare him to Trump, whom isn’t taking a dime from the government for his work.
