    Re: Eric Cantor and Private Jet Tax Breaks

    More pandering to the "I envy the rich" crowd.

    This will kill the private jet industry just like this pandering killed the yacht industry in the early 90's.

    And for what? To punish those evil rich people.

    Actually he said he would let them expire and would campaign on it in 2012.

    I’m not a republican though and I think taxes will need to be raised and the tax code simplified as a part of any viable debt reduction plan.

    I don’t think taxes need to be raised as a part of the debt limit increase vote however and I want to pull my hair out when I hear Obama trying to make increases in spending a part of the plan.

    Note, again it appears that this tax break was pushed for by a Republican. So contact Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan about the jobs he saved with his tax break. If I was in Obama's position I would have accepted Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan tax break to get the rest of my stimulus package passed.

    What? By the stats I've seen I'm rich. I don't understand your post.

    You don't find it a bit sad and pathetic he is trying to trap republicans with something he actually wanted and they didn't even vote for?

    Rep. Todd Tiahrt didn’t vote for it and it passed 246-183 in the House so I’m not sure where you come up with the idea that the stimulus wouldn’t have passed without this tax cut in it.

    You're making an equate between voting on the record against the final bill and not having anything you want in it. The equate is not there. Rep. Todd Tiahrt got the tax break he wanted in the bill, actually voting for the whole bill is negotiated separately. I think that he didn't like the spending part of the stimulus bill, but a tax break for his constituents would be great for him.
