Obama seeks hike in post-presidency payments
President Obama sought to increase the amount of money available for the federal government to spend on former presidents in advance of his White House exit.
In his budget requests for fiscal years 2016 and 2017, Obama proposed hikes in the appropriations for expenditures of former presidents, according to a report from the Congressional Research Service published Wednesday.
The report, which discusses the pensions and other federal benefits offered to former commanders-in-chief by way of the Former Presidents Act, specifies that Obama’s 2017 budget proposes a nearly 18 percent hike in appropriations for expenditures of former presidents. He successfully requested an increase in such appropriations for fiscal year 2016.
“The President’s FY2017 budget request seeks $3,865,000 in appropriations for expenditures for former Presidents, an increase of $588,000 (17.9%) from the FY2016 appropriation level. The increase in requested appropriations for FY2017 anticipates President Barack Obama’s transition from incumbent to former President,” the report reads. SOURCE
I guess everyone knows by now; I HATE Barack Obama.
Obama is attempting to RAPE America again and is the sorriest SON OF A BITCH to ever sit in the Oval Office. Every time you think this POS Kenyan bastard can’t sink any lower, he finds a new way to do so, and grins like a jack-ass as he does it.
The Obama regime cuts G.I. benefits every time they can and in every way they can, his evil regime has hit Social Security recipients extremely hard, not getting ONE RED CENT in a cost of living raise in the last 2 years.
And before some Liberal RETARD has a brain fart and tries to tell us how Social Security is an entitlement, paid to recipients due to the generosity of the United States government, think again you brain-dead waste of skin.
Social Security is supposed to be a TRUST FUND held for the working men and women of this nation for a time when they become disabled or until they reach the age of retirement and begin to draw back the money that THEY paid into the fund.
No one in the federal government GAVE Social Security a penny, but when the government needs money they have NO PROBLEM with hitting the funds and withdrawing whatever they need as they leave a promise to pay it back.
They haven’t, and I doubt they ever will.
The same goes for the military personnel of this nation; those folks write a blank check to the federal government, one they back with their lives as they go where they are needed any time they are needed.
Military people are DYING waiting for needed medical treatment from the Veterans Administration. Sometimes they are dying because OF the V.A. and the less than sanitary equipment used in the care they DO get.
And Barack Hussein Obama, a totally useless excuse for a human being and a total disgrace to this entire nation has the audacity to ask for an increase in the benefits for ex-Presidents as his time in office comes to an end.
