Ron Paul Calls Secret Service “Welfare”

Given his libertarian roots, it comes as no surprise that would-be GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul would call for the end of the U.S. government’s Secret Service program. What was surprising, though, is the word he used to describe this practice. Paul, who stopped by the “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Tuesday night, spoke out against Secret Service protection, saying, “It’s a form of welfare, having tax payers pay to take care of somebody. I’m an ordinary citizen and I would think I should pay for my own protection.”

Without taking consideration of all the attacks President Obama has had to endure in his three years in office, Paul knows he’ll never be the President and is adding fuel to an already fiery political race.

Does Paul’s claims signify a backhanded slight against Obama and his presidency? Would anyone think to say that the Secret Service is “welfare” if the POTUS was White?
