But, but, but.... JOE BIDEN! Via Taegan.

Politico reports the federal government "spent nearly $3.7 million on former presidents last year. That covers a $200,000 pension, compensation and benefits for office staff, and other costs like travel, office space and postage."

"The costliest former president? George W. Bush, who clocked in at just over $1.3 million. That includes almost $400,000 for 8,000 square feet of office space and $85,000 in telephone costs."

They spend the most, produce the least amount of jobs and go all out trying to roll back our liberties 50 years. This is what they meant by "Take The Country Back"
