Give them a nice pension, sure, but the White House should not be a key to wealth.

How they make money once they are out of power is of less concern than the obvious conflict of interest of a sitting billionaire POTUS signing legislation to reduce estate taxes.  His own family estate should pay the prior rate.

Perhaps we should do both. Even when they're "out of power" they still have a lot of influence. Perhaps we should even limit the networth of Presidents. You would really only get people who were interested for the sake of the position then. Like if we said a President can't have a total net worth of over $5 million or $10 million (still quite well off) then we wouldn't have people like Trump run in the first place. Does anyone really think his love for country is more than love of himself? I'm sure we might miss out on a few good people though.

I totally think that all congress people should have to place their investments in a blind trust or wrap model where they have no discretion.

Dont forget Pelosi!

But really the list goes on and on for almost every congress man and woman.



Also something weird I saw for Maxine Waters (unless google maps is playing tricks on me.) Why does she own what looks to be a crack house in some back alley? Reported worth 1-15k?
