Protection — For How Long?

Filed under: Probable Cause — Bill @ 7:40 am

Tuesday morning’s Washington Times online has an article headlined Ex-presidents may get Secret Service for life.

The article reports that Congress is considering amending or repealing the 1994 law which limited protection to ten years after leaving office.

What do you think?  Should former presidents and their spouses get lifetime Secret Service protection?  If so, why, and if not, why not?


  1. Yes, absolutely. Whether you like a particular president or not, they are living symbols of the U.S. An attack on any of them would be an attack on the U.S. Each of them should receive, and deserve, Secret Service protection.

  2. I would think 10 years is sufficient.

  3. Every last one of them are bazillionaires. Let them hire their OWN private sector security and help the economy.
