Why civil rights leaders make bad politicians and economists

Civil Rights leaders in American are quick to scam bucks from the taxpayer to provide welfare and free largesse to their minority constituents.  The Democratic party has a history of passing massive legislation that has provided benefit after benefit to tens of millions of Americans for not working, or for having children.

So it should come as no surprise that the son of civil rights leader Jessie Jackson would propose a boondoggle of a welfare scam, paying $40,000 per person per year to all the unemployed in the US.

This proposal comes out to $800+ billion per year, and over $4 Trillion in just 5 years.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has offered his own $804 billion jobs plan that calls on the federal government to hire the nation’s 15 million unemployed Americans for jobs paying roughly $40,000 each, and bail out all the states and cities facing budget crises. - Fox News

But then again, that's Chicago politics for you.  Like Barack Obama, who was voted into office in the state of Illinois not by merit, but by finding scandals in his opposition, so to it appears Jessie Jackson Jr lacks the basic intelligence of simple math to realize that what he is proposing... make-shift work pay to 15 million for doing.... who knows what, and is the standard practice of progressives who rarely think before they speak.
