Lifetime secret service for Bush, Obama and future presidents

So, it seems the tax payers will continue to pay for Obama and Bush for a long, long time. I find it amusing (and smart) how Obama included former President "W" Bush. It's amazing how the President and/or government can decide to require something that isn't paid out of their own back pocket.

In my opinion, there is no need for lifelong security detail for a former president. Once they are out of office they are no longer making any decisions for the nation so why do we need to protect them for their lifetime? Out of respect, I can see something like 2-5 years but after that...I don't think the former president(s) is relevant anymore.

It's not like any president these days does anything significant like ending slavery or some important shit like that.
