Piggy Perks for Ex-Presidents

Interesting article here about how the good ol' American peasant is subsidizing the lavish office lifestyles of millionaire former Presidents.

As you might imagine, the biggest sucker-up of tax money is Bill Clinton. Despite the fact that his "speaking fees earned him more than $40 million in addition to the $12 million his book deals have put in his pocket since he left office", you and I are paying his phone bill, which was $104,000 in 2006 (For 1-800-INTERNSEX calls? My God, I get unlimited long distance for under $50. Why can't he?), and his "satellite TV in his office, complete with eight separate receivers and all the movie channels that come with the "entertainment package". Your cost? $1,800 per year."

Skinemax movies being supremely important for getting post-Presidential business done, apparently.

Maybe he needs those flicks because the little blue pills don't work so well for him anymore. That's what he likes to do in offices, remember.
