Skip to comments.Biden charging Secret Service for cottage rental
Posted on 07/31/2011 2:50:58 PM PDT by Nachum
The U.S. Secret Service does more than protect Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. the agency also pays him rent.
Since April, Mr. Biden has collected more than $13,000 from the agency charged with protecting him and his family, for use of a rental cottage adjacent to the waterfront home he owns in a Wilmington, Del., neighborhood.
Mr. Biden, listed not as vice president in federal purchasing documents but as vendor, is eligible for up to $66,000 by the time the government contract expires in the fall of 2013, the records show.
Officials say the arrangement came about when a previous tenant moved out of the cottage and the Secret Service moved in.

>> “Doctors” do. They introduce themselves as “Doctor” so-and-so. <<
Some do and some don’t.
As long as they don’t declare themselves as healers, their lie is trivial.
Don’t let that “MD” title go to your head much, do you?
Silvie’s MD is for Maryland
Silvie is a sweet humble lady we all love and appreciate..
Why should we surprised?
No, he is charging us.
I am impressed with your immediate response though. Take care, FRiend.
Please continue pinging me.
This thread, along with my glass of Pinot and my TV turned on to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey”, is making for a very lively and fun Sunday late afternoon...
new meaning to the term “rent seeking”
We pay for his protection and he charges us rent for protecting him!
Knock it off, humblegunner! Enough with the negativity.
Priceless response. Carry on...
Muchas Gracias, Semper911.
There’s nothing like mindless reality television on a Sunday evening...
No different than Hilary and Billy Jeff charging the Secret Service rent for the Gate house at the Chapaqua house. Same deal different day.
Gives a whole new meaning to CUT CAP & TRADE
Fixed it for you, Silvie.
After Tuesday, when Timmy Taxes has to start prioritizing, where in the queue do you think Biden’s rent check will end up?
Or did you just assume the MD meant Medical Doctor?
I thought it meant "metal detector." It confused me. I was afraid to ask.
Funny, I would've never thought that watching "The Real Housewives of New Jersey would make me "better" than you "schlubs". Maybe it makes me a better person than you, though...
Well, can’t stay to chat, but I want you to know that I just went back and had my title added to my new luggage tags, in honor of you, Gwenguts!
Dang humblegunner! Did a doctor accidently cut off your penis when doing an appendectomy? Is that why you harbor such resentment?
Not only does Clinton use our taxes — through that USSS rental — to pay his morgage. In addition, we paid plenty for upgrades to the property in Chapaqua so the Clintons could be “protected”.
Or maybe not, sweetiecakes.
I hope there is an off-season discount involved, otherwise I smell imputed income. Surely it will be disclosed on the appropriate forms. :)
This is being dragged up to discredit Biden..(a very easy task to say the least).
Try this scenario....
I have been saying since the beginning that as long as Biden is BO’s VEEP, no one would harm a hair on BO’s chinny chin chin because of the fear of Biden becoming the pResident.
They will start digging up dirt on Biden, allowing him to either be removed or resign his post, so a hand picked VP can be put in place.
Then when the BO SHTF starts, BO can pull a Nixon, resign before being impeached or jailed and the ‘hand picked VP’, not voted into office etc (think G Ford) can be inserted.
And, believe it or not, I am NOT a conspiracy theorist but I definitely do not doubt for a minute that this could take place.
thanks Nachum, locked thread:
I don't suppose he's donating the rent income, minus any taxes he pays on it, to the U.S. Treasury either.
If the SS were to stop by here and ask me a single question in my house, the conference room rate on the living room is $10K/hr (canapes and coffee not included), two hour minimum. I will bill them. Rest assured.
Harry Truman was pretty poor when he retired, had to live in his Mother-in-laws house.
Lighten up, Francis.
Guess they moved in 1996. I lived on Presidential drive in the 90’s and just past what was then their house was my 1 mile mark.
One of the nice things about summer property with extra room is that you get to invite friends who help to make it a good time. (And maybe if you don't have friends you rent it out.) Having to cede those extra rooms to some government employees certainly deserves compensation.
to be the serfs Master
Learning from the knee of mac, the crybaby liar, daddy on how to even more corrupt than he already is.
If she’s a medical tech she’s not an MD and therefore the MD would be irrelevant.
She’s not referring to herself as Dr. Waldorf!
Where does this “worship” stuff come from? You obviously have a problem with the medical profession. Hope you never have a stroke!
Or Mr. Cheney? Good grief-they never gave the man any positive credit as it was! To the ‘other side’, Mr. Cheney was the devil or something; which was sad, he wasn’t anything of the sort!
The Cheney obsessions is bizarre.
It’s like it’s a faith-based requirement of their religion that Cheney is evil.
Every now and then I’d ask “what was it he did again?”
You’d get very vague mumblings about Halliburton, and Blackwater. Not very specific at all.
“so.....he was on the board once, so you think he tricked everyone into war just to give jobs to his buddies? Doesn’t that make pretty much EVERYONE in government in several countries a moron for being so easily manipulated?....”
That pretty much ends the conversation right there.
Bite Me has been a GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE for ALL OF HIS ADULT LIFE.....HOW did he buy such a property??????????? hmmmm
He is on a lake with an in-ground gunite pool which he never finished paying for!
