The Republican party really ‘shines’ in the past few years. I want to be honest with you- completely– I’ve ALWAYS been disappointed by both parties and NEVER supported anyone until Donald Trump came to power, first as a presidential nominee, then as the POTUS.
And actually, I still don’t support Republicans nor Dems, I support THE REAL PATRIOTS like Donald Trump, Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz etc. But I will tell the truth, and the truth is: the right wing of the Republican Party did something amazing for our country. In the report blow there is one more example why the Republicans are WAY better than the liberal Democrats:
Former Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr., was convicted a few years ago on charges of looting his own campaign fund. Now, he is trying to collect about $100,000 a year in workers’ compensation even though he pleads guilty to all of the charges against him.
Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., however, is not about to let Jackson move forward with this act of welfare fraud. The Chicago Sun Times reported that Davis believes the law that allows Jackson to complete this welfare scam are wrong and need to be changed.
“I believe if you’re a member of Congress and you are convicted of stealing campaign funds, you should not be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Members of Congress need to be good stewards of taxpayer money,” Davis said. “We’re reviewing the process and possible legislative options to prevent the abuse of this program that is meant for honest-working taxpayers.”
Current laws allow all federal workers, including members of Congress, to be eligible for workers’ compensation if they suffer “from injuries sustained in the performance of duty while in service to the United States.”
Jackson served time in prison for stealing $750,000 in campaign cash and using it for personal spending sprees between 2005 and 2012. Now that he’s out of jail, his income from workers comp and Social Security Disability Insurance provides him with a gross income of $138,452. Jackson scores $124,052 per year in workers comp and SSDI benefits for himself as well as an additional $14,400 per year for SSDI “derivative benefits” flowing to his children.

Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, and many others did the same- got really rich stealing money from their campaign. That is illegal. But, I don’t see the things that way. The big corp. donors give them money (read: BRIBE) and they return the favor.
You really think Obama and the other liberal minions care about communism, socialism, human rights etc? That’s ridiculous- they care about money and PRESTIGE in the globalist ranks. Correct me if I’m wrong!
