How long do you have to work to make $160,000? If your name is Marian Robinson, the answer is no time at all:
First Grandma Marian Robinson, 79, will receive a lifetime 160K government pension when she leaves the White House next year, according to congressional budget statements.
According to documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Mrs. Robinson earned the lifetime pension for “services rendered as full-time/in-home caregiver” for granddaughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, during President Obama’s two terms in office. …
While holding no official job title, Mrs. Robinson likely qualified for her lifetime pension under the “optional” eligibility requirement for the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS).
Not many grandmothers receive a grotesquely extravagant lifetime pension for having babysat their own grandchildren. It must be wonderful to have your snout in the trough, so long as the looting spree lasts.
Maybe a lawyer could explain why this is not graft.
