The Secret Service has run out of money. Why? Because of the costly trips taken by the President to places like his home of Mar-a-Largo that costs $3 million dollars each visit. The Secret Service protects this president and the vice president and their families and former presidents like Barack Obama, George W. Bush and their families. The Secret Service says it has all the money it needs for the current mission requirements and can compensate for overtime pay according statutory pay caps. White House Correspondent April Ryan has the story on how they will get new needed monies.
