What is life like after you being a US President. Well for sure, it pays to be one. Their yearly salary is about 400,000. Some may say that’s a bit much and some will say its a bit low for the pressure Presidents go through. Aside from their great pay, they also get free transportation in their very own limousine, as well as their own airplane called air force one. Free house is also a plus for these guys, and they live in one of the biggest Mansion in Washington. After Thinking about it, I might need a career change.
What do presidents get after they leave their office? One thing for sure, you’ll never have to worry about them not having a job. Why, well because they are still on the government’s payroll. Yes correct, they get an annual pension that consist of free health care, paid travel and 200,000 a year. Not bad for being unemployed right?
With all this money and time what do these presidents do? Well some take up new hobbies, for example Bush and his father was in to guns. They took up airsoft guns. Just think of this as paintball, but with smaller bullets. These guns are life like. More then what you’ll see with paintball guns. The game play of airsoft guns are the same as well.

Unlike the Bushes. Some other presidents are more into relaxation and rehabilitation. So they take up golfing. A sport less stressful. Well, I guess the stress will depend on the person playing golf if they are good or not.
Also some write books, for example Jimmy Carter, he wrote 14 books after being an ex-president. He was flat broke after leaving the white house, but made a lot of money by writing books and doing book deals. Others like Clinton, he spoke. He was paid over 125.000 dollars to give speeches all over the world. Yup that’s right 125.000 a speech. Clinton was once quoted saying that he didn’t have much money when he was in the white house, but once he was out it was a different story.
Not every president got rich after. Harry Truman, after office, he couldn’t even afford to answer copious mail or even respond to appearances request. Because of Truman, congress created benefits and pensions for ex presidents.
