If Hillary wins in 2008

I am reviewing my emails just before I settle down to watch the returns from the Potomac primaries. There is an email message from one of my buddies that I have not checked for accuracy and may be hogwash for all I know but which I find kind of interesting. This intriguing piece was written by someone with the email address [email protected]. I do not take credit for this piece. If you have any questions, kudos or comments, please feel free to pass it on to the original writer. I am only sharing a personal email message. Here it goes..

“If Hillary wins in 2008 and Bill is ‘appointed’ to fill her Senate seat
and either live to retire ‘they’ (together or alone) would get two US Presidential retirement checks, two US Senate retirement checks, and a 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….
Understand ole Bill has earned $40,000,000 in the past six years. What a guy!

AND THE REST OF THE STORY… Hilarious Rotten Clinton, as a New York State Senator, now comes under the ‘Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan,’ which means that even if she never gets reelected, 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 outives 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 house in upscale Chappaqua, New York. Makes sense! 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 Clintons 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, the taxpayers, are paying the Clintons salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security, as well as the salaries for their 12-person Secret Service staff — and, this is all perfectly legal!

As she runs for President, will YOU vote for her? How many people can YOU send this to?”

You know what? I am just going to tune in to the primary results on TV now. Obladee, Obladaa!

Update (Reader): That’s it, I’m running for Congress.  Seriously, I think all this needs some kind of attention.  Former Presidents should be able to live off of their speaking fees to begin with, but this doubling up of inflated compensation is just wrong.

    Interesting, and I have no doubt that it’s true. The Clintons have the reputation of being wealth redistributors, but now we have irrefutable proof that they’re making a living off the public dole…at the expense of taxpayers. What a gig! In exchange for this, the taxpayers (“customers”, as Harry Truman called them) have received incompetance, an Al Queda mess that the current administration has had to deal with, outright deception, lies and perjury, and people still believe that the 90’s were better than the 00’s!!! Let’s all drink the koolaid and check our brains at the door…
