I found this article amusing in that the amount taken from taxpayers by presidents tracks with the increase in federal spending.
As expected, George W. is taking the most from taxpayers during his retirement. The American public foots the bill for $400,000 worth of office space, and also paid the phone bill for the extravagantly wealthy Bush 43. Bush chalked up $80,000 in phone calls on the taxpayer’s dime. What will Obama do, make us pay his $250,000 laundry tab?
