Now that Obama is out of office he gets to focus on what he does best. Spending cash. Obama is the most expensive ex-president of all-time.
Per The Washington Post:
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.
Sure, Obama is blowing through money for him and Michelle, but that’s not all. They also have paid $536,000 to rent an office in DC that is over 8,000 square feet. And the taxpayers are footing the bill for it.
His pension is a record-high $236,000.
Per Daily Wire:
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 his administration, he directed the government to spend millions of dollars on global warming research, gender studies, lavish vacations, golfing trips, and prosecuting his political enemies with the IRS and the Department of Justice. Meanwhile, Americans fell deeper into poverty and veterans suffered at the hands of an ambivalent VA Department.
Even though he has been out of the White House, Obama is still taking advantage of the perks of his office at the expense of the American taxpayer.
He played the left when he called himself a man of the people. When he tried to portray himself as “one of them.”
Barack Hussein Obama was full of it then and he is full of it now.
