BREAKING: Congress Just HAMMERED Obama – They’re Taking Away His…

We previously reported that the company Cantor Fitzgerald will be paying Obama $400,000 to give a speech for their health insurance conference in September.

The size of Obama’s paycheck is frustrating to many Americans who don’t understand how Obama can rake in speaking fees while receiving a taxpayer funded pension as well.

Everyday Americans don’t receive Social Security if they are working. Shouldn’t the same rule apply to government employees?

Obama definitely doesn’t think so, and vetoed a bill last year that would have put a limit on the amount of money former presidents are allowed to earn if they want to keep receiving their full pensions.

Unfortunately for Obama, his veto may now be worthless.

From Angry Patriot:

Recently, Obama has been giving talks to Wall Street in return for large sums of money. As a response, Congress is going to introduce a bill which will curb a president’s pension if they take over $400,000 of outside money.

If this bill can get past Congress, President Trump is likely to sign it. It would be a huge step in the fight to stop politicians from trading their influence for money.

President Trump doesn’t have to worry about this bill affecting him in the future because he is rich on his own. It’s a large part of why he won the election!

Obama on the other hand has no problem accepting Cantor Fitzgerald’s bribe. All he’s been good for since becoming an ex-president is relaxing at various locations around the globe. The occasional speech money allows him to keep up his lavish lifestyle.

If Obama wants to follow in Hillary’s footsteps and work the speaker’s market, then his taxpayer funded Secret Service protection, salary and personal expenses should be cut.

Do you agree? Let us know in the comments below!

      Elizabeth Cook— you made the right statement. A law to stop this should go int action RIGHT NOW. Obama played our country for so much money for himself & the other ‘4’ people he claimed. This is SI wrong, but the Demicrats let him take all he wanted while they were not smart enough to see how Obama ripped them off. You better put a stop to him before he rips off more from you.

    We trusted Obamacare as only option after such a rise in employer healthcare. All it got us was a $9000 tax bill on top of premiums for insurance that is too high a deductable to use. Our only crime was using our IRA to pay down debt. Be warned. Find out all the penalty for Obamacare.

    He is no longer president,,,, why does he or any other ex president need secret service? theya re no longer in commmand. We are not allowed to earn a certain amount with our social security check and that barely enough to live on, He makes a law the year before he leaves to benefit him,,, Enough is enough. this is why this country is in serious debt, I feel once they are no longer president they are now considered a regular person and shouldn’t need them to protect them.Obama is a crook and lives high on hte horse, I think he made enough with his vacations alone, no more!

  12. Michelle

    Once he accepts anything over his $400k…his “pension” should be voided. He antics in DC should get it stopped too..Soros and he are committing treason with their actions against the president.

  13. Merlin S. Bradley

    June 8, 2017 at 3:14 am

    After, what he spent globe trotting the world, should count as part of this his pension and limit how much is given him as a pension. His free spending ways and giving taxpayer money to countrys that hate us should have been stopped. His eight years was a disaster for our country lets stop supporting him and his free spending wife, and do it now..

      We need to vote out the ones in government who sit there and did nothing during Obamas term in office. They are just as guilty as him.

  14. Jim

    June 8, 2017 at 3:16 am

    He shouldn’t need a pension or secret service protection with the money he makes from speaking engagements. Cut him off!!

  15. Betty Preis

    I agree with Linda Middleton’s comment. He does not deserve the taxpayers money.

    It is a travesty that the people who want to cut benefits for seniors and disabled are the same ones who continually vote themselves lifetime pensions and medical coverage. Is there anyone out there that feels the outrage that I do?

    • Jean Zucha

      June 8, 2017 at 4:59 am

      Ann ,I don’t think it is right either. Our President said ; it best in his inauguration speech ! About the American people suffering , while
      Congress and the President flourished.. !! And what is being uncovered by our President . A huge amount of money was taken from the Social security going to people with no Social Security number or had an application for it . sounds like an inside job to me . yes ! Somewhere they will pay for it . The Bible doesn’t lie .

    While they are at it lets stop others on government pensions like President Clinton and Hillary. Other people have a limit why not them. Obama preaches Socialism, but he is a Capitalist all the way. Has he ever told the truth about anything in his life.

  18. Angrys wife

    Obama is a traitor who committed treason and he should be in prison we shouldn’t give him any more money

    I agree 100% with ann. I am outraged as well with the obama’s raking in all that money at the taxpayers expense. limit his pension and let the obamas live on the amount of money the seniors and disabled have to depend on.

  21. Jane Abbene

    And we haven’t gotten a dime cost of living in Social Security. Totally unbalanced. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Can’t we get some things changed once and for all? This is legal stealing. Throw around hot air and they get a cut that we will never see in a lifetime. Something wrong with this picture. They’ve got carte Blanche throughout life even though they corrupted the system and pocketed while they worked? Change the freaken laws already. Unacceptable.

    Cantor Fitzgerald could use this money to help
    the children of their employees who lost their lives in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. What does Barack Hussein Obama know about health insurance that qualifies him to speak at such important conference. The Obamacare failed policy is ruining thousands and thousands of American families.

  26. Doriana Yannantuono

    He should not get anything. Obama and the Clinton’s should all be put in jail…..They are all a bunch of crooks..

  27. Carol Lucas

    Obama is now an ordinary citizen. He keeps spreading his sickness wherever he goes. I agree that Congress should pass this bill. Especially with Obama, because he is a taker whether it is due him or not. If he wants to go and continue to lie and treat America like his enemy and he makes 400.000 doing the speaking tour then his pension should be cut, because taxpayers pay into that pension.

  28. Robert Schlothauer

  29. Doris Lindsey

    I don’t think and of the past presidents should get anything..they should have to find a job and work just like the rest of us and pay their on insurance…that goes for congress and the house members….just because they leave office doesn’t mean the tax payers should keep paying them….

    I would love to see the IRS charge him tax on all the ” Vacation trips” he took in Air force one. Add total costs of hauling his mother and others around with him. If he doesn’t want to pay seize his assets. That would be treating him like any other citizen.

  33. Sherry clark

    June 8, 2017 at 12:03 pm

    Why would we the people continue to pay for their vacations??? Doesn’t make sense. They can hire private security like that of their many Hollywood friends and pay for the jets with their money. Isn’t it funny that Obama changed the laws to suit himself. Why does he need protection?? According to him everyone loves him!!!! We the people paid for him to fly around and campaign for Hillary while abandoning our country. As a member of we the people, let us curb Obama spending. A budget for their family might help.

  34. Patrick Wynne

    Obama should be recognized for what he is. A traitor to this country. He did his best to make our military like a third world country. He got rid of generals with combat experience. He lowered the military spending and sent those military men and women out of the military when their only concern about the future was to continue to serve and retire with honor. He bowed to the king of Egypt, showed no diplomatic knowledge when he shook the hand of the Queen of England, was part of the bunch that sold uranium to our enemies, blocked the pipeline construction that would have accomplished two things. Provided jobs for many Americans and increased the oil in our country therefore making us less dependent on foreign oil. My suspicion is that he is a pawn of another country whose desire is to destroy this country from within.

    They say Obama is not wealthy. I just read his wealth is at $40 million. when he became President they said he had around $10 million. so he has amassed $30 million in just 5 months? I think that makes him very wealthy. $6 million a month = $72 million/yr. So yes his pension should be cut, just like it should be in any govt. position where the person is making $6 million a month.

    WOW–we took a chance 8 years ago on hope and change and we were all mis-led and lied to. 4 years ago he scared everyone to be afraid of Romney and we wasted 4 additional years of his socialization and Globalization bull plus his subsidizing countries who are against the US. Thank God he’s gone from office, Thank God the corrupt liar was finally exposed, and Thank God that Trump is trying to right the ship from the direction Obama led us over the past 8 years.

  38. Anne

    June 8, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    I’m 63 years old and I was never too interested in politics until the last 8 years. In analyzing my situation, I realized that I was not too interested in politics because I was always confident that the president and our other political leaders always had the best interest of the US in mind and they’d govern accordingly. Shortly after Obama took the leadership role, it was obvious that he didn’t have our best interest in mind and he led that way for 8 years plus he continues to try to spread his propaganda and bull now. The US needs a leader like Trump and if the Democrats can’t stop being obstructive then they all need to be gone led by Chuck, Nancy, Pocahontas and Maxine “Impeach her” Waters.

    I don’t think he deserves anything,he has been a fraud from day one.make him pay for his own secret security pay for everything on his own from now on. he thinks he’s entitled because he was once president.I call it mooching.not president.

  40. Beverly

    June 8, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    I think they should take it all. Obviously he deliberately didn’t sign the change cause he had set his self up before his presidency ended. He should of never been a President of United States he was a foreign student. Where’s Arnold Schwarzenegger he should be telling at the rooftop on this. He couldn’t be President either. The shame Arnold I know your a Democrat but right is right but you would rather slam our President Trump.

  41. Margie

    June 8, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    He, and all retired politicians, should have to follow the same rules we do. Our retirement (social security) is penalized if we work after we start receiving our checks.

  42. Sharon

    June 8, 2017 at 5:30 pm

    I Agree with all the people on here. Obama and Hillary should both be in Prison for Treason and what they have done..They are both SNAKES..with a forked tongue..

    Non of these criminals should have access to being paid anything, they should all be in prison in GITMO. Should have happen soon as January 20th this year. Now it needs to get it done. U know who they are. Please President Trump, Vp Pence & God. IMMEDIATELY.

    Trump will have been successful, if he can get congress on the same system all of the rest of us have. No retirement all laws apply equally to congress and term limits for all including the Supreme Court other a mandatory retirement age

    he has spent enough of americans money for doing nothing.He needs to be exicuted for treason.We the people don’t need to house him in prison spend a buck on a bullit and end his sorry ass.

  48. Bobbi Lemon

    June 11, 2017 at 12:59 am

    A past president should not be able to make additional money other than their pension….if they do try to earn extra money…the amount they earn should be deducted from their pension

    He should not be getting a dime !!! He has stolen millions from the United States people he’s not an American he’s a liar he’s a fraud he’s a nobody living off the United States this should not be anybody else because he’s black I really believe that’s why they are standing cool I would flat out He dies not deserve a dime .

    For eight years all did was take are money spend any way he could it seems, plus we did not riase in are social security checks but he got his for sure we get it once in while one time he gave $ 100.00 one time and that was we got after we did not get hardly any thing after that. What gets me how he help the Welfare people by giving them more money to them more money and they have never work day in their life it’s not fair for sure. They should look in to the system and clean house and geti it straight around put them to work and make real money for change. That was Obama and Hillary faults they don’t need that much money really cut them back. They money took from us has to come back to us they do’nt need it they been all of them work they bunch of crooks for sure, they start cleaning house get rid of the jerks for sure it’s not fair the rich take are money it has to stop for sure.

    Yes his salary should be cut along with medical n especially secret service. Secret service cost so much more due to unlimited outside speeches.
