Remember, insufficient taxation of corporate jets are a symbol of greed and all that’s wrong with the economy.
Barack Obama, June 13, in North Carolina:
It is good to be back in North Carolina. (Applause.) It’s great to be back at Cree. To all the employees at Cree, thank you so much for your outstanding work and hospitality. I actually visited this plant about three years ago. I was still running for office. Somebody in the plant showed me a picture of the two of us together — (laughter) — and I looked so much younger then. (Laughter.) But — so it’s true, I’ve got a lot more gray hair now than I did the last time I visited. But I have a better plane — (laughter) — so it’s a fair trade.
Hey, those private planes with all the latest gadgets and luxuries are awesome, aren’t they? Say, how much does Obama pay in taxes on that plane?
Thanks to Jeff Dobbs for the good catch.
