  1. No, you dimwits . . . Michelle Obama's mother does not receive a federal pension. Just more Tea Party lies and bullshit.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A story widely shared online that claims President Barack Obama’s mother-in-law will receive a lifetime government pension is false.

    The post published by The Boston Tribune, a satire website that mimics an actual news publication, is headlined “First Grandma Marian Robinson to Receive Lifetime $160K Government Pension.” It was relayed by a number of other conservative sites, portrayed as a credible news story.

    The story references congressional budget statements, allegedly obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, showing that Marian Robinson earned a $160,000 lifetime pension for being a “full-time/in-home caregiver” for the Obama’s two daughters.

    It does not provide evidence of the FOIA request or the budget documents, and ignores that Congress is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.
