This is a shameful expense for the taxpayers. Jimmy Carter's is the least but still to high.

Ehh, kind of a non-issue, considering that the money is not that much.

As the article says, the $1,153,000/year for Obama includes renting office space, pension, health care, and hiring assistants to answer mail and secretarial stuff. Since former presidents get a lot of official-related mail and requests, it makes sense to not leave them destitute. As a country we can afford this amount OK.

George W gets a little less than Obama per year, and Clinton and George HW Bush both less than a million per year.
You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time...and those are pretty good odds.

I see what you're getting at, removing term limits would solve this problem.
