You know how Texas Senator John Cornyn just hates, hates, hates government? But even worse how he hates people who get “entitlements” like social security and Medicare?

Not so much in his own feedlot.

Come to find out, the man is triple-dipping the government retirement teat.

$48,807— is from the Judicial Retirement System of Texas. He served on the state Supreme Court from 1991 to 1997.

$10,132 in retirement benefits last year from the Employees Retirement System of Texas because he was Attorney General for three years.

$6,444 retirement distribution from the Texas County and District Retirement System because he was a district court judge for three years.

So, my math ain’t perfect but he gets about $65,000 a year retirement for 12 years of work. That’s probably better than your average social security retiree. Probably.

Plus, he makes about $200,000 as a Senator.

So, he’s just scraping by, whining about how everybody is taking money from the government.

The man has no shame. Lots of leather jackets. But no shame.
