HYPOCRISY: VP Joe Biden Charges Secret Service for Rental Property … Wasn’t Biden involved with the Deficit Committee?
HYPOCRISY … I thought the rich were supposed to pay their fair share?
No wonder Vice President Joe Biden has been absent from any substantial aspect of politics in Washington, DC. He has been too bust being a landlord. According to the Washington Times, Biden has been charging the Secret Service for a rental cottage adjacent to the waterfront home he owns in a Wilmington, DE. Are you serious? The Secret Service pays $2,200 a month to protect the VP and his family. Maybe this should have been added to a debt ceiling debate as one of the expenses that needs to go. Just another example of a politician taking advantage of every tax loop hole while Biden, Obama and Democrats loos to raise taxes on those that make $250K, not millionaires and billionaires as they claim.
The U.S. Secret Service does more than protect Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. — the agency also pays him rent.
Since April, Mr. Biden has collected more than $13,000 from the agency charged with protecting him and his family for use of a rental cottage adjacent to the waterfront home he owns in a Wilmington, Del., suburb.
Mr. Biden, listed not as vice president in federal purchasing documents but as a “vendor,” is eligible for up to $66,000 by the time the government contract expires in the fall of 2013, the records show.
Officials say the arrangement came about when a previous tenant moved out of the cottage and the Secret Service moved in.
Talk about your typical liberal hypocrisy. Wasn’t Biden involved with the deficit committee? Wouldn’t you think that a politician should not be charging the government for protection? Isn’t it the Democrats who talk about people not needing money and why should they deserve tax breaks if they are rich? Well, then why is Biden charging the very people who protect him for a rental? WHAT A SCAM and yet just another example of how tax payer money is wasted.
WIZBANG has a couple of ideas for increasing revenues, that the Democrats are so fond of … seems like some fair skin in the game tax increases to me.
