Obama loves to lecture US about OUR greed, but HE still wants HIS big paydays.
Remember the days when Obama would lecture us about the greed of rich fatcats? About how they needed to pay their fair share?
He obviously meant OTHER rich fatcats. Not himself.
It’s the same old typical Liberal ‘do as I say… not as I do’ rhetoric.
Because when he had a chance to lead by example on this? He ‘led’ … from behind.
While he was still in office, Congress put forward legislation that would have fit his rhetoric perfectly. For every dollar over 400,000 that the President makes in a year, his government pension is reduced by one dollar.
After all, he doesn’t need it if he’s making that much money. Other people need it far more than he does. VA hospitals, for example.
Remember how he scolded fatcat bankers for cashing in when ordinary people were losing their shirts?
What did the Peace-Prize recipient DO when he had a chance to put it into law?
Former presidents currently receive $207,800 per year, the same amount cabinet secretaries are paid.
But lawmakers are considering a move to shrink that payment – dollar for dollar – for Oval Office retirees who collect more than $400,000 in income.

He’s the one-percentiest of the one-percent.
And that wealth comes from nothing more than having served in public office.
He didn’t invent something, start a company, employ people.
He got elected and got rich. But, judging by his veto … not ‘rich ENOUGH’.
He needs to KEEP getting the taxes collected from when someone’s granny dies to keep those 3-month vacations hobnobbing with Billionaires flowing.
Keep telling us how the Left cares so desperately about the poor, though.
There are a few people out there who still actually believe you.
