Presidents in this nation have been wealthy elites since the office was first created. These men (and eventually women) make millions every year just in their paid speaking contracts, their book deals, and their college appearances. They do not need to retire on the US taxpayers' dime when Congress is working tirelessly with the Deadbeat Billionaire's Club to insure that Americans have no ability to retire at all, despite having paid into Social Security for all their lives. Let the wealthy pay their own pensions -- Congressmen and Presidents alike. And while we're at it, they should all be on Medicaid for insurance coverage. If it's good enough for our veterans, it's good enough for our politicians!
