Nancy Pelosi was caught red-handed in an act of theft.
She tried to lay low, but luckily someone figured out what she was up to.
Now Pelosi is going to have to pay the price for her terrible deed.
As one of the most powerful members of Congress, and a Democrat no less, Nancy Pelosi thinks she can get away with anything.
She is certain that the media will never hold her accountable, and she can simply engage in whatever activities she wants in order to enrich herself and her family.
In this respect, she is similar to the Biden family, who believe they are above the law for the exact same reasons.
Pelosi is an extremely wealthy woman. She lives a lavish lifestyle which she can afford thanks to decades of leeching off the system.
She is also unbelievably powerful and has played a major role in creating the rules of the game that we all play.
This includes the Social Security system, which has major flaws.
But it turns out, those flaws, which exist largely because Pelosi allowed them to during her reign as speaker, may be benefiting Pelosi tremendously.
According to Yahoo! Finance, Pelosi may be getting even richer off of the Social Security system that she helped create.
The article says, “Pelosi, once the most highly compensated member of Congress with an annual salary of $223,500 while House speaker, will reap a substantial public pension and potentially $1 million when she cashes out money from her federal saving account.”
“She is also entitled to collect Social Security. Assuming a maximum benefit of $4,555 if she begins collecting in 2023, she’ll receive $54,660 each year.”
One million dollars is a huge amount of money. $54,660 a year is more than the annual salaries of tens of millions of Americans, and it’s just icing on the cake for Pelosi and her husband who are already rich.
And while Social Security benefits are not public record, and there is therefore no way to know for sure if Pelosi is collecting them, the fact that she helped perpetuate this system that she is now able to benefit from is extremely shady.
The article goes into some detail about that: “Before 1984, federal civil service employees and members of Congress didn’t pay into Social Security and were ineligible for benefits. However, members first elected in 1984 or later are covered automatically under the Federal Employees’ Retirement System (FERS) and also are entitled to collect Social Security benefits. Pelosi was elected in 1987.”
So while Pelosi didn’t initiate this change, she certainly helped keep it in place through her power as speaker of the House.
It seems clear that she saw money coming her way at the end of her congressional career.
Nancy Pelosi may have thought no one would find out about the Social Security money she had coming her way.
But now that she has been caught, it’s another huge embarrassment for Pelosi and the Democrats, who are already reeling from Joe Biden’s many scandals.
