Nearly 140,000 people have signed a petition to stop President Barack Obama’s approximately $30,000 monthly salary ($400,000 annually) while he’s campaigning for Hillary. He’s currently earning that salary comprised of tax dollars from hardworking Americans while playing golf, going on his endless vacations, causing race wars, and yes, campaigning for Hillary Clinton. It has many Americans OUTRAGED, and rightfully so!

Petition author, Rick Mitchelson, states that he created the petition   “out of frustration that a sitting president is using taxpayer funds to push a liberal agenda.”

Mitchelson states in his petition on StandUnited.org
When a lame duck President reaches his last few months in office he often endorses a candidate from his party to secede him,” Mitchelson’s petition says. “Rarely however, does that same lame duck President spend weeks or even months prior to the November election actively campaigning for his successor.”

Mitchelson works as a Social Studies teacher in Wyoming and felt his frustration reach a peak over the summer.  He saw the petition as an outlet for his frustrations, never dreaming that there were so many other Americans that were JUST as frustrated as he is. He understands that there are potential roadblocks to what he is asking for but offers a means to address in the petition –

The President’s Annual Salary is approximately $400,000, with additional perks for travel and housekeeping.  Air Force One costs approximately $180,000 per hour to operate.  FEC Rules are loosely interpreted, but require the Political Party to repay the American people at a reduced rate if the travel is purely political, and no requirement if there is “Government Business” involved.  The rules are “fuzzy” at best.

We the People are demanding Congress, as the sole authority of Federal revenue, to withhold any salary and/or pension and/or travel expense amounts from the President while he is actively campaigning for someone else,” states Mitchelson.

 

Congress holds the keys to docking the presidential paycheck as the legislative body with “sole authority of Federal revenue.” The only thing stopping Congress from withholding the president’s salary is Article II of the U.S. Constitution which says that a president’s compensation “shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected.”

Mitchelson states that he knew about the section that prevents Congress from changing a president’s pay during his term. “When I wrote the petition, I knew it was a stretch. Perhaps Congress could potentially withhold the president’s $33,333 monthly paycheck until after the November 8 election or possibly prevent this same issue from occurring in the future.  Obama’s current monthly salary is more than some hardworking Americans’ annual salary and he makes that salary from the fruits of their labor. It’s a slap in the face!

To add insult to injury, in addition to the $400,000 annual salary, the president also has an expense account of $50,000 for costs “resulting from the discharge of his official duties.” Then there is the costs associated with Air Force One which costs approximately $180,000 for every hour of flight.  That means campaign stops for Hillary Clinton are costing the taxpayers a mint!

Mitchelson was more than a little surprised at the response his petition received.  It seems his frustrations are shared by MANY Americans.  “I must have touched a little nerve,” Mitchelson said.
