Barack Obama has spent the past seven years spending taxpayer’s money like a drunken sailor on a bender. He raids the pocketbooks of the American taxpayers to the point where many can no longer afford vacations, special purchases, and have witnessed their discretionary income, if they were lucky enough to have it, be wiped away by an over-bloated federal government who readily feeds itself with the money made by hard-working Americans.
Obama has done this all while he and his family have thrown extravagant parties and gone on one lavish vacation after another while simultaneously, and hypocritically, railing against “income inequality.” Now, the Marxist-loving, embarrassment of a president has the nerve to demand a pay raise.
I kid you not.
According to the Congressional Research Service, Obama is requesting an 18-percent increase in pay for former president as part of his EOY 2017 budget. This coincidentally kicks in just as he is leaving office in January 2017.
“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 report says.
Obama leaves office in January 2017, and the increase in requested funds for FY2017 “anticipates President Barack Obama’s transition from incumbent to former President,” the report says.
Yet, Obama calls other people selfish and greedy while he is trying to stick it to the taxpayers, of whom over 94 million are out of the workforce thanks to his disastrous policies, even beyond his presidency.
