...this just gives me one more good reason not to like Hillary Clinton.
If Hillary Clinton wins in 2008, and Bill Clinton is 'appointed' to fill her Senate Seat, and either live to retire 'they' (together or alone) would get....
1)Two US Presidential retirement checks,
2)Two US Senate retirement Checks
3)retirement check from the State of Arkansas.
About the only thing they MIGHT NOT get is...
A Social Security Check....
But I wouldn't bet on it....
I understand ole Bill has earned
$40,000,000 in the past six years.
What a guy!
AND THE REST OF THE STORY...
Now, "Our" Hillary, as a New York State Senator, now comes under the 'Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan,' which means that even if she never gets re-elected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies.
(Would it not be nice if all Americans
Were pension eligible after only 4 years?)
If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE dies.
He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies.
If Hillary outlives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies.
Guess who pays for that?
It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency, they purchased a million dollar-plus housen upscale Chappaqua, New York.
They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life.
Still makes sense.
Here is where it becomes interesting.
Their mortgage payments hover at around $10,000 per month.
BUT, an extra residence 'had' to be built within the acreage to house the Secret Service agents.
The Clinton's charge the Federal government $10,000 monthly rent
For the use of that extra residence, which is about equal to their mortgage payment.
This means that we,
Are paying the Clinton's
Safety and security,
As well as the salaries
For their 12 man staff
This is all perfectly legal!
