When the heroes of Benghazi finished their mission, the State Department, run by Hillary Clinton at the time, told them they had to foot the bill for their own plane fare home from Germany, according to former congressman and Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz.

Chaffetz appeared on Fox News on Tuesday night to talk to Sean Hannity about Barack Obama’s comments regarding “wild conspiracy theories — like those surrounding Benghazi.”

At the 4-minute mark, Chaffetz declared that Clinton’s State Department abandoned the Benghazi heroes. “You know what happened when they actually got home? Those people saved dozens of American lives. When they got home you know what the State Department — Hillary Clinton’s State Department did? They took away their security clearance so they couldn’t get a job. It’s unbelievable.

“That’s how they treated these guys. When they were there in Germany. They didn’t send them home. They didn’t offer them plane tickets. They just told them they were released. They had to pay for their own plane tickets to get home.”

WATCH:

If these allegations by Chaffetz are true, it begs an obvious question: Why in the world were American heroes treated so shabbily when the government thinks nothing of draining taxpayer resources for illegal aliens and giving luxury perks for politicians? Thankfully, President Donald Trump is doing something about the ridiculous spending.

In January, he announced his plan to end the over $33 billion dollars in aid that the U.S. has been providing Pakistan since 2002.

And there’s more — in September last year the Washington Examiner reported that illegal immigration cost American taxpayers $116 billion dollars a year. “The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the most authoritative report on the issue yet,” read the report.

“And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.”

Axios listed a few taxpayer funded perks that our elected representatives get at our expense.

It costs taxpayers more than $3.5 million dollars a year for members of the House and Senate for travel and to staff their offices, as they see fit, according to Axios. Members of Congress also don’t work a full year for their salary. “The House has averaged 138 legislative days each year since 2001, and the Senate 162.”

They get subsidies for their health care under Obamacare; “they receive a federal subsidy amounting to 72% of their premiums.”

Pensions aren’t shabby either. “Depending on age and length of service, members can receive a lifelong pension of 80% — which, given today’s congressional salary of $174,000, equals out to $139,200 in annual taxpayer-funded retirement benefits.”

They also receive free airport parking, and among other things. “Our nation’s legislators get a slew of lifetime benefits even after leaving office, including a taxpayer-funded gym at the Capitol, access to the House and Senate floors, parking in House lots, and the ability to dine in the House and Senate dining rooms.”

Finally, as we have the national argument over whether or not former Obama administration officials should lose their security clearance, why would American heroes have their security clearances revoked? As government workers draw salaries 80 percent higher than that of the American worker, why would we deny the ability of these heroes to find work after their service?

Why — with all the money bleeding out of our federal government — would service members, and heroes at that, have to pay for their own plane tickets home after serving their country?

It’s not just the money. Those heroes are making the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Not just for you and me, but for Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, and all the other characters who gave stand down orders in Benghazi when Americans were in danger and needed help.

Our Benghazi heroes deserved better.

    Not mentioned is that Brennan had their clearances pulled, the FBI threatened them with charges of ‘unnecessary force'(in a active gunfight no less! OVERSEAS IN A WAR ZONE NO LESS!!!!) if they would not shut up.. making the heroes actual criminals, needing to spend their own money for legal representation and the FBI could and would have hammered these guys with legal expenses till they were all bankrupt… as the FBI has done to many people, to shut them up!!!!!
    This is the height of corrupted power, ruination of Americans protecting other Americans, where the last administration had decided those in Benghazi had to be sacrificed.. sacrificed for politics.
    To make the last administration look good. For appearances sake, the last administration simply didn’t care about the lives of Americans.. traitorous behavior extraordinaire!!!

    I hope the American people that are not brainwashed by these despicable corrupt criminals which include the entire Obama administration get to see every single one of them charged for treason. These deep state criminals let these men die, lied about and Obama continues to spew his lies. Throw in the Obama regime and Hillary spying on the Trump campaign with the help of corrupt federal agencies, the collusion to rig an election with phony and fake evidence, and Obama trying to set up a shadow government. Hopefully, they all get the same sentence for treason as the Rosenbergs!

      Oh Crystal, there definitely was a collusion, but it was paid for by Clinton with Obama’s help. He knew all along she wasn’t using a .gov account. They were writing back and forth to on another. America will have their eyes opened when his sealed papers are all opened in 10 more years if we’re all still here.

    You see the truth about Obama and Hillary but liberals only see hate. They want you to think Obama and Hillary were just wonderful to americans. One big lie. Only power and control they want. Left Americans to pay their way back from death. Obama and Hillary are just evil. They just be shot for treason. Liars. Subhuman stains on America.

      And President Trump isn’t taking a salary! He is a multi billionaire that doesn’t need this job but does it for the love of his country. He also was worried about the country. Part of that was our politicians selling out the country to foreigners.

      What can you do about it? If the government won’t do anything about, then you organize and tell the government that if they don’t start putting these a-holes, (being nice here) in prison, then the American people will go after the scum and wipe ’em clean, and you can start with the big-eared pole-sucker!!!

    And the intelligent American taxpayer/voter is surprised by the unmitigated gall of the past presidency?????? The Dems have no use for the military,have nothing but disdain–until they are needed to pull their lame ass out of a mess [which by then, it is too late,and brave men and women lose their lives] and then deny they were needed—since it was only a videotape that caused the ruckus….

    It is way past time that we have a serious audit into what our tax dollars really go for; and apparently it is also way past time to rewrite the amounts of pay and persk for the public officials, they are supposed to serve us, not suck us dry………
    This article is enough to make anybody think twice about, what is going on in Washington DC…

    That is how wonderful Barry and Killary were/are. Take care of the illegal immigrants and leave our military etc to struggle. Undermine the people of the United States but stick them with exorbitant bills to be paid via taxes. Two genuine low life individuals. May they never have another role in our government in any way! Meanwhile giving away pallets of money and stuffing their own pockets.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome applies to Trump I assume. He is definitely deranged, narcissism and paranoia are personality disorders and paranoia is a mental illness. The most pertinent question is how much intertwined fantasy and stupidity does it take to produce this mass idiocy. I haven’t read this much bully bull in at least a year. Chaffetz is full of the remainder of the hay eaten by the bull and falls out in patties. The comments are so full of lies, conspiracy crap and desires to hang, butcher, behead, shoot or at least jail forever the Obama gang. Denigration is obviously the highlight and most important thing in each comment.

    It’s the Bozo crowd. Have a good time Bozos and be stupid my friends.
