Thank you from the Dragon

How about this:

Politics as we know them are not working in this country. And it is not the job of politicians to support the party view. It is the job of the politicians to work for a better country. If they feel the party is wrong then they have a duty to speak up and let their views be heard. It is past the time were the party is more important than the country.

I am really sick and tired of politicians letting others decide what to do and think.

Presidential Perks: Paying for Carter’s postage, Bush’s bills, and Clinton’s rent

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/power-players-abc-news/presidential-perks-paying-carter-postage-bush-bills-clinton-100551264.html





It's a little-noticed part of the federal budget: Each year U.S. taxpayers pick up the tab for the expenses of our former Presidents. For the likes of Carter, Clinton and Bush that means free rent, postage, phone and office staff — all courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.

In 2010, taxpayer-financed expenses included $15,000 for Jimmy Carter's postage, $579,000 for Bill Clinton's rent and a whopping $80,000 for George W. Bush's phone bills. It adds up: All told, U.S. taxpayers were on the hook for more than $3 million of expenses for the four surviving former U.S. presidents.

They certainly don't seem to need the money. These days being a former U.S. President is a lucrative business. After all, Bill Clinton raked in more than $10 million just in speaking fees last year. George W. Bush made even more: $15 million just for giving speeches.

This entitlement for the very rich was put in place when at least one former president wasn't rich. Congress created this presidential entitlement in 1958 because Harry Truman couldn't afford to pay his bills.
