Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. was in attendance to Occupy the Dream with Occupy Chicago at the People’s Church of Chicago on Sunday. He took to the pulpit with congresswoman Jan Schakowsky to commit to pushing more progressive legislation.
Jackson was given a minute to deliver a comment but was able to negotiate a little extra time. In that time he said a whole lot.
You can decide which comment is most notable for yourself, but the fact that he can refer to $90o billion like it is chump change, shows you just how little he respects the American taxpayer.
