The U.S. Secret Service does more than protect Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. - the agency also pays him rent.

We wonder how come NO one calls him a slumlord?

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., suburb.

Mr. Biden, listed not as vice president in federal purchasing documents but as a "vendor," is eligible for up to $66,000 by the time the government contracts expires in the fall of 2013, the record show.

Isn't this amazing. Biden gets paid by American taxpayers, the Secret Service gets paid by the American taxpayer and who is getting screwed here: The American Taxpayer!

How's that Hope & Change workin for you?
