Should the retirement benefits given to presidents be reduced?


A bi-partisan bill in Congress seeks to do just that.

(From Government Executive)

The Presidential Allowance Modernization Act (H.R. 1496), sponsored by Reps. Jody Hice, R-Ga., and Elijah Cummings, D-Md., would update a 1958 law and limit ex-presidents’ future pensions. It would update the annuities of surviving spouses, and reduce the allowances provided for post-presidential expenditures—virtually eliminating funding for staff and office space.
