    Fun Fact:
    A lot of the Founding Fathers died broke. Jefferson sold his book collection to the Library of Congress after the British torched it, partly to repay a lot of his huge debt.

    The only question is if those expenses are related to their former job (not exactly sure what that could be, but what the fuck do I know?). Anything that is is the same thing as any business expense, I guess. Anything else - GTFO. I don't care what letter you go before your name, especially these rich motherfuckers.

    yeah, fuck that. I don't know what a resonable rate really should be, but if that douche Carter can get by on 518K, how about starting close to there and setting a limit of 500K.

    Good idea. (except for the part where he ties it to their income - that has nothing to do with it). I wonder who, other than the evil teabaggers, will actually support this bill.

    Unfortunately I don't have the power to change the past. Yet.

    I don't know. Do they?

    Well, then they shouldn't. I don't understand why that is always your go-to argument. "But these other undeserving people do it too!" Didn't I say that anything not directly related to any obligations or loose ends from their Presidency plus some kind of retirement payment should not be a taxpayer burden? I believe I said exactly that right at the start of the thread.

    It's just not a good argument. I mean, I don't get it. Do you think it's OK for the First Lady to take lavish vacations and for ex-presidents to just bill whatever to the taxpayer? If not, why are you arguing?

    Wackbag has Pertussis AIDS tonight

    Just waiting for the outrage to be equal on both sides. At least there's an argument for the First Lady's trip that she's performing goodwill missions to other countries as an official representative of the United States.

    And no one picked up on my Rosalynn/Dixie Carter joke :( I was going to go with Helena Bonham next.

    I can't defend hypocrites on either side. However, comparing the Michelle Obama situation to this is unfair as they are two different things. If people were only outraged about Clinton's post presidential expenses, but not Bush's, THAT would truly be hypocritical. Not to mention that the Rep. proposing the limiting legislation is a Republican...

    Oooh, a work-cation. How white collar of her. :icon_cool

    You should have picked a President people actually cared about for you jests.

    Well, there's probably the fact that Mooch-elle is spending more than all of these guys combined in a single day. But don't let that get in the way of your false equivalency.

    So have you read it now that you know it's not a Think Progress hit piece?

    And by "facts" you mean "shit I pulled out of my ass" naturally.
