Jason Chaffetz will be gone from the White House before his term ends. However, he still has his agenda. Chaffetz won’t be pleased until he sees Obama’s presidential pension in the garbage.
From Truth Examiner:
Chaffetz tweeted earlier, “Obama’s $400,000 speech could prompt Congress to go after his pension https://usat.ly/2pyJUSb via @USATODAY Yes, it will.” Chaffetz wants to go after Obama’s Presidential Pension because of his speeches.
According to the USA Today article he cites:
Chaffetz and Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, the sponsor of the companion Senate bill, say they will re-introduce the Presidential Allowance Modernization Act this month. The bill would cap presidential pensions at $200,000, with another $200,000 for expenses. But those payments would be reduced dollar-for-dollar once their outside income exceeds $400,000.
While there might seem to be a logic here, it is definitely an attack on Obama specifically. Bush also made millions from speeches:
Bush has been raising his profile in a different, and lucrative, way: He has raked in millions of dollars since leaving office by making scores of speeches that typically earn him six figures a pop. … Those speeches have earned Bush about $15 million, following in the golden path blazed by his predecessor, Bill Clinton.
What a scum bag. It’s only a matter of time until hypocrisy comes to back to bite Chaffetz in the rear. What will he say in 4 years when Trump begins to receive his pension?
