More of the same...the phony class warfare crap never ends...Obama whined about corporate tax loopholes before December's fiscal cliff deal..but what do you know, Obama's fiscal cliff bill creates more corporate welfare and greater tax loopholes for his cronies!
The class warfare BS is so over the top bad even ABC News snuck in a story (past Dem stooge George Stephanoupolus, who runs the news) about how Obama and the White House have this week emphasized the outrage of the "corporate jet loophole", and how the GOP would rather protect rich corporate jet owners than have childen starve...
Here was White House Press Secretary Jay Carney last week:
“How do you explain to a senior that we’re doing this, asking you to sacrifice, but we’re not saying that corporate jet owners should lose their special tax incentive.”
On Wednesday, Carney summed up the Republican position this way: “We’d rather see our national security undermined than corporate jet owners, God forbid, give up their tax break.”
And President Obama in an interview Wednesday with KAKE-TV in Wichita: “What we don’t want to do is give somebody who’s buying a corporate jet an extra tax break.”
Carney has brought up the corporate jet tax break at every single briefing this week.
Listening to the White House, you might think that the “balanced” Democratic plan to avert the spending cuts would close that loophole for private jets.
But you would be wrong.
The Senate Democratic plan – which has been endorsed by the White House and is, in fact, the only Democratic plan actively under consideration right now – doesn’t touch corporate jets.
