    The pope's retirement deal is likely way better than yours

    Don't pity the pope as he heads into retirement today: He's getting a pretty sweet deal. Not only will the soon-to-be pope emeritus be handed a monthly pension of about $3,300, he'll also have all his living expenses  spacious home, home-cooked meals, housekeeping staff  paid for by the church. Plus, he'll continue to enjoy the Vatican's generous private health-care coverage. Compare that to the average American retiree, who receives about $1,200 a month in Social Security and lives in fear of spiraling health-care costs not covered by Medicare. The pope's parachute looks downright golden, no matter what angle you holy see it from … yours?lite

      No they won't.  Our congressmen and women will, with $14,500 per month for life.  And they don't have to wait until they're too old to enjoy it, either.
