No, hes not moonlighting as an agent.
Vice President Joe Biden last year earned $20,900 in rental income from the Secret Service, which is paying him to host agents on his property so they can protect him.
Most high-profile people in need of protection pay people to keep them safe. Government officials are allowed to have taxpayers pick up the tab. Biden is unique in that he actually gets paid by his bodyguards for the right to protect him.
Bidens tax records list rental income of $20,900 from a cottage on is property, which is reportedly being leased by the Secret Service and paid for at a rate that could earn him even more money next year.
Biden took deductions for mortgage interest and taxes that allowed him to report only $12,653 of the amount on his federal tax return.
Of course, the Bidens badly need the money. They only had an adjusted gross income of $379,035 last year. This probably also explains why they gave less than 1.5 percent of their income to charity.
Among the $5,540 in charitable donations were $1,000 to the UN World Food Program; $1,080 to the Northern Virginia Community College Alumni Scholarship Fund; $1,000 to the Diocese of Wilmington; Delaware; $360 to a breast health initiative launched by Dr. Jill Biden; and $50 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Biden is one of the cheapest bastards on the planet.Certainly one of the dumbest.
Isn’t the taxpayer paying the MORTGAGE on the Clintoon’s house in Chappaqua? Bet we still are and you’re right.....the silence if deafening.
He is aware that money doesn't actually go to wounding our soldiers, right?
What a class act Biden is eh?? Profiting from his Secret Service protection. Could you imagine the uproar if this were a Republican VP?? He’d be accused of greed, fleecing the taxpayer, ingratitude, etc.
Was the cottage leased before, if so he may have some point.
If never leased before this they should not pay or the secret service should bring a big tent with animals, it would be a circus there anyway when Biden is involved.
I guess the first question is:
Since he lives in DC at the VP mansion, with all its SS agents, why in the hell do we have to have SS agents protecting his house when no-one lives there?
Enquiring minds neeed to know!
“Bidens tax records list rental income of $20,900 from a cottage on is property, which is reportedly being leased by the Secret Service and paid for at a rate that could earn him even more money next year.”
Who’s he gonna rent to next year? OWS?
if he did, there'd be a couple more zeros on that $50
From His Majesty's Secret Service
These money-grubbing bastards never miss a chance to rape our treasury, do they?
Just be glad it is only for 10 years now.
Expect a visit from His Emminence’s Storm Trooper Service for your picture, subject!
I goota tell yay if i had the privilege of having someone willing to take a bullet for me hell il be on the couch And tuck the agent in bed and bring him warm milk and cookies
Wow. I have more charitable donations in 2011 than Joe.
Yup I got the visit for less
No, he didn’t get it from some government entity, he stole it from us taxpayers.
Only in America. Whadda country!
what a racket
Democrats - Thieves, Thugs, Thralls and Thickheads
Well, that’s one way of getting your money back.
Isn’t this ‘cottage’ the house his Mother lived in when alive???
What a piker! $1000 to their church? That is less than $100 a month! $50 to the Wounded Warrior project? And his kid was a soldier. All this on an income of $400,000.
IIRC, the SS rental income for a ‘cottage’ on their property in Chappaqua pays ENTIRELY for their mortgage on the home. Could Dems get any more sleazy??
