Congress has put Barack Obama on notice that his generous government pension could be taken away if he keeps living like a celebrity.
Obama’s behavior since leaving office has only cemented the fact that he’s an elitist.
From partying on yachts with Hollywood stars to raking in millions of dollars in book deals and speaking fees, Obama’s doing anything but retire with class and grace.
He certainly wasn’t the “people’s president,” and there’s no reason the people should be subsidizing his lavish lifestyle.
USA Today reported that Congress is taking another look at a bill that would cancel pension payments to past presidents if they earn $400,000 or more in a fiscal year.
Unsurprisingly, Obama himself vetoed that bill when it was first introduced.
Obama had already put the wheels of his post-presidency cash machine in place, and wasn’t about to let Congress derail his plans.
However, now that he’s out, Congress is going after Obama.
