There Is Nothing Left to Cut

The federal government spent $3.7 million on ex-presidents last year. It’s fair to provide them some security when needed, but this is a bit much — especially since all four living ex-presidents are wealthy men.

Right in line with his spending habits in office, George W. Bush is the worst offender, hooking taxpayers for $1.3 million. Besides racking up an $85,000 phone bill, he also spent $400,000 on office space. Those two items alone almost equal Jimmy Carter’s entire $500,000 tab.
