the president gets a $19,000 entertainment account, $50,000 expanse account and a salary. Everything the president does is pay by our taxes. VP and congress gets similar accounts, plus retirement. Obama gets a jet, helicopter, free room and board, bodyguards, press agent, etc. George Washington has an expanse account IIRC, then congress revoked it and gave him a salary.
