Doh! Conservatives Bash Biden for plan to Retire on his Government Benefits Package!

Under the heading "You can't make this stuff up," Republicans are apparently saying, "Yes you can."

He's a freeloader. Vice president Joe Biden now expects to live the life of ease by soaking taxpayers when he retires. He's now bragging how the benefits he received as an elected government official will help in in retirement:
Not the Onion!!!
“I have no savings account, but I have a great pension and a great salary,” Biden told the crowd at the White House Summit on Working Families.
Not quite a member of the millionaires club, but heck, why didn't he plan ahead?
However, Biden’s poor financial planning means that taxpayers will have to foot the bill for his retirement.
Maybe, just maybe, that was Biden's "financial plan" all along?

Still, it looks like Biden is going to swim against the tide of Republican career politicians giving up their government pensions and health care guarantees too. What, they haven't?

Well then I expect the Free Beacon will follow up the Biden story with other government trough feeders like Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner etc..

The moral of the story: Those nasty pensions and employee benefits drain resources from employers. Only moral wealthy people with lots of socked away money deserve comfortable retirements.

Spoken just like somebody who still doesn't understand how he has to pay interest on a debt that's going parabolic just to use the "money" that's in his wallet.

And just so Hairplug Joe can sit around the White House lawn playing with squirt guns.

Yea, Joe should just give up his benefits, right? Just like every other politician, right?

Do you ever think before you react. Grow up.

That would be nice but it's not going to happen.

Yes I do. Grew up a long time ago. If you want to pay for his benefits, be my guest. I've got my lifeboat already.

News Flash: We're paying for our D.C. politicians benefits. Remember they have health care, and they don't care whether we do or not.

While you're at it, visit your nearest CEO and tell them to give up their benefits too. Wouldn't it be nice if we all sank into debt with no safety nets? Freedom brother.

Yes we are. Not only do they not care whether we have healthcare or not, but they are actively trying to kill us off. Mostly a soft kill...chemtrails, fukushima radiation, gmo's, etc.

Like I don't have better things to do than find a CEO and try to force them to do something I know they won't do.

We ARE all sinking into debt. It's up to you as an individual to find safety nets for you and your family.

Hint: don't look to Washington.

Try power. Not Force. You are more powerful than you know.
