I listened to Barack today and really my stomach still hasn’t recovered and what did I hear? the same old Democrat talking point, the evil rich, ignoring all of their evil rich friends, you know like Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric, whose company rips jobs out of America and puts them in China. What did Barack have to say? well I heard private planes an awful lot and yet, it was Barack who signed a tax break into law under the so called “stimulus” bill, that was going to fix roads, bridges and all manner of our “crumbling infrastructure” We Know Democrats Are Stupid, But Barack The Rest Of Us Americans Are Not
The chief economic culprit of President Obamaâ€™s Wednesday press conference was undoubtedly â€œcorporate jets.â€ He mentioned them on at least six occasions, each time offering their owners as an example of a group that should be paying more in taxes.
â€œI think itâ€™s only fair to ask an oil company or a corporate jet owner that has done so well,â€ the president stated at one point, â€œto give up that tax break that no other business enjoys.â€
But the corporate jet tax break to which Obama was referring â€“ called â€œaccelerated depreciation,â€ and a popular Democratic foil of late â€“ was created by his own stimulus package.
Proponents of the tax break lauded it as a means to spur economic activity by encouraging purchases of large manufactured goods (planes). So the presidentâ€™s statement today â€“ and his call to repeal that tax break generally â€“ is either a tacit admission that the stimulus included projects that did not, in fact, stimulate the economy, or an attempt to â€œsoak the richâ€ without regard for the policyâ€™s effects on the economy.
For many Americans, those effects could be dramatic. Cessna and Gulfstream have facilities in a combined 15 cities nationwide (and another four abroad). A significant decline in consumption of private jets would undoubtedly have adverse effects on at least some of those local economies. Given the sizable bump in consumption that the initial tax break yielded, its repeal would likely have that economic domino effect.
I heard that those evil rich people who are buying those planes need to pay more so the federal government can keep giving scholarships to college students and it occurred to me, they had better not get a degree in aviation because when Barack is done, that industry will be over in China too. This guy has to be the most ignorant President this Country has ever had to suffer through, and trust me, the majority of us are suffering. He pits one American against another, when the history of our great nation is for us to come through the darkness together. It is really a damn shame what the left has done and continues to do to the values that make America great. It is with great anticipation that I look forward to putting the kibosh on Socialism in the 2012 elections. I say that pretty damn sure of myself because WE are not all Socialists now and 2010 was a preview to how serious We The People of the United States of America take that.
