How To Save the Government $5 Million

$5 Million savings

A president's pension currently is $191,300 per year, until he is 80 years old.

Assuming the next president lives to age 80. Sen. McCain would receive ZERO pension as he would reach 80 at the end of two terms as president. Sen. Obama would be retired for 26 years after two terms and would receive $4,973,800 in pension.

Therefore it would certainly make economic sense to elect McCain in November.

How's that for non partisan thinking???

He'll probably die from agent orange before he turns 80 and we'll have an even worse president.

Please don't find those ballot boxes.

LOL, hey is Palin older than Obama?

Or Americans could not vote for McCain, not have to endure the continuation of the Iraq war for the very distant future, and save themselves $341.4 million every day?

Maybe you should run for office.

Non-Partisan thinking? I don't believe you've had a day of non-partisan thinking in your life!

OK, wait, hear me out for a moment. Out of the four (Obama, Biden, McCain, Palin) who is less like a politician?

I like this rationale. Too bad $5 Million for the government is like $0.50 to me.

Where's the ballot box? ;)

If McCain dies in office, this will actually cost us more money on Palins pension. Palin is younger then Obama by 2 years, and women tend to live longer then men anyways.

Damn! Maybe we can keep him alive on life support long enough for the next election.
