How to save the governmnet $5,000,000.00

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.

I totally cut and pasted this from my mom's blog. It was too funny not to.
Alright, so Ronnica is technically right. The pension is lifetime- not just to 80 years old. But, McCain is still gonna kick off before Obabma- and it's still funny.

So, do you think that McCain might use this as part of his platform? :-)

Um, that would be a NO.
