Millionaires, Billionaires, and Corporate Jet Owners

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, kind-hearted soul that she is, tears up during a rant about the evil House Republicans, complaining that they want to ax care for seniors in order to pay for tax cuts for...yes, you guessed it, "millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jet owners." If we're still dwelling on those top-tier tax rates, I guess that means that anyone making $250K a year is--by default--a millionaire, billionaire, or a corporate jet owner. I'm not the first two, so where the heck is MY corporate jet!?!?!

And I'm not sure, but wouldn't a corporate jet owner be--as a matter of definition--a corporation? What's the deal with the jet-hatred, really? This meme is simply stupid.

Beyond that, Wasserman-Schultz hits a total fail when she says that Republicans are asking the groups that can least afford it to shoulder the tax burden: "the middle class, working class families and small business owners." Newsflash, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz: many small business owners report incomes of over $250K a year.

Cheers, all.
