Obama said after Romney reminded him Obama's pension is invested in Cayman Isles, China,etc... "I don't look at my pension. It's not as big as yours so it doesn't take as long. I don't check it that often." Well Obama ONCE again is full of CRAP! FACTS: Investments??? Obama, you may recall, was an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004 before winning election to the U.S. Senate. He is a participant in the General Assembly Retirement System in Illinois, said William Atwood, executive director of the Board of Investment, who confirmed that for us. The Romney campaign pointed us to that pension fund’s holding in an entity that is part of Advent International. Advent has described itself as "one of the world’s most global private equity firms" and has buyout offices in 16 countries. Atwood confirmed that the pension fund has invested $30 million in one of Advent’s limited partnerships, Advent International GPE VI-A. That partnership was organized in the Cayman Islands, Atwood said. Public filings back that up. PolitiFact Wisconsin | Romney says Obama also has investments in Chinese companies and through a Cayman Islands trust Pension size? From the standpoint of a public pension, Obama is well-heeled. As president, he will receive $191,300 annually for life — win or lose in next month's election — and receives a travel allotment as well as mailing privileges. Should Obama lose, his presidential pension kicks in immediately after leaving office. Given that the president enjoys a normal life span, the pension allotment would be worth upwards of $6 million. The federal budget spends about $3 million annually for the four living ex-presidents. Obama also will get Secret Service protection. In addition, Obama may be due a nice pension for the eight years he served in the Illinois Legislature as a state senator. Illinois is infamous for its lavish pension plan for former lawmakers. A Freedom of Information Act request for Obama's pension amount submitted Wednesday to the General Assembly Retirement System of Illinois was not immediately answered, nor was a call to the Obama campaign. But what about Romney? It's extensively documented that Romney is, well, a rich guy. He earned untold millions —though famously circumspect about releasing tax returns — while leading private equity giant Bain Capital and has a substantial retirement plan. His Individual Retirement Account could be worth in the neighborhood of $87 million, as documented in an extensive report from the Washington Post. But as for a strictly public pension like OBAMA is getting over $200,000 a year for life???? Zip, zero. Romney only served one term as governor of the Bay State and did not take a salary, so he is eligible for nothing. Pension Envy: Who Has More NO PENSION for Romney... Obama huge pension for LIFE from double dipping as Ill Senator and President... OVER $200,000 a year for LIFE!!!
