Ex Presidents live a life of luxury
Several years ago, I read a newspaper article about the tax dollars spent on all of the Ex Presidents. At the time, Nixon and Ford were alive.
For President Nixon, the government spent money for subscriptions to every newspaper, and business and financial magazine in the Country.
For President Ford, I remember that the government bought him several pairs of scissors, ranging over $20 thousand.
What I remember most about the article was, the government bought over 200 chairs for President Carter. Some chairs cost more than $600.
I have no problem with this. After all, they were Ex Presidents, and were entitled to what the government purchased for them. However, there was one thing I really had a problem with.
