Yes it will

White guy doesn’t like to see black guy get a decent pension. White guy gets to work to slash that pension.

Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz suggested Wednesday that former President Barack Obama’s $400,000 Wall Street speech has prompted a coming measure to cap presidential pensions.

Utah representative Chaffetz plans to reintroduce a 2016 bill to the House that would cap presidential pensions at $200,000, with an additional $200,000 in expenses, USA Today reported.

Last July Obama vetoed a bill that would have curbed the pension of former presidents if they had an outside income of $400,000 or more and limited expenses at $200,000, arguing that if implemented it could have left staff of former presidents suddenly without work.

“The Obama hypocrisy on this issue is revealing,” Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and sponsor of the 2016 bill, told USA Today. “His veto was very self-serving.”

Late Wednesday Chaffetz tweeted the USA Today link with its headline “Obama’s $400,000 speech could prompt Congress to go after his pension,” adding “Yes it will.”

He really did.
