Jesse Jackson Jr. is proving just how cushy government work can be.
I mean, yeah, he and his wife are going to jail for using campaign money for personal use. And sure, a lot of that ill-gotten property is being repossessed. But he’s still eligible for $8,700 a month in disability due to his bipolar disorder, and he could still receive $45,000 a year in federal pension funds after he turns 65.
And we wonder why our government is in such a dreadful amount of debt.
