Obama signs protection bill for former presidents

CNS News

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has signed into law a bill granting lifetime Secret Service protection to former presidents and their wives.

The measure Obama signed Thursday applies to presidents elected after Jan. 1, 1997, specifically Obama and former President George W. Bush. It reverses a 1994 law that ended Secret Service protection 10 years after a president leaves office. Under that law, the Homeland Security secretary could extend such protection on a temporary basis.

A sponsor of the bill, Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, says increased terrorist threats and the greater mobility and youth of former presidents made the change necessary.

The new law also authorizes Secret Service protection for the children of former presidents until they turn 16.


The bill is H.R. 6620.

    BAHAHAAHAHA!!! Obama is such a dictator, it’s not even funny. I guess he knows people will be coming after Clinton, Bush and himself soon after they find out the truth and the SHTF. Also, a dictator needs a lifetime supply of secret service protection in order to keep his dictatorship regime going. I think Lil’ Kim would have been jealous.

    Don’t worry folks, we’re still a free country and the greatest country in the world and are God’s country. I mean for being such a free and just country, you’d think we wouldn’t have any protection or any bulletproof gas guzzling limousines and that everyone would like us and wouldn’t want to kill us.

    OH! THAT’S RIGHT! I’m not thinking like a completely unstable, elite psychopath like Obama in which according to him and the elitists brilliantly pathetic minds, “Everyone is crazy, but me!”. So that is their justification for more security. And they say, we’re mentally unstable? Unbelievable.
