    Another under reported Obama gaffe

    Michelle Malkin » Did Obama Forget Those Private Jet Tax Breaks He Just Denounced Were Created By His Own Stimulus Plan?
    The chief economic culprit of President Obama’s Wednesday press conference was undoubtedly “corporate jets.” 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.
    “I think it’s only fair to ask an oil company or a corporate jet owner that has done so well,” the president stated at one point, “to give up that tax break that no other business enjoys.”
    But the corporate jet tax break to which Obama was referring – called “accelerated depreciation,” and a popular Democratic foil of late – was created by his own stimulus package.

    Our system is all screwed up. For example, unless a single mother has an extremely well paying job she's better off having no job at all.

    i really think that mixing classes is good for everyone involved. and remember, policemen and fire fighters and teachers get subsidized as well. if the people of the county have issues, they can deal with this.
    The problem is that if these people move up the income ladder and become disqualified for subsidized housing benefits, they lose the nice surroundings.

    It creates a perverse incentive to never get off the subsidy.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Key phrase in this is that its a county, which if you believe in local government, has every right to do whatever the community agrees to.

    This isn't a federal program. Its local and these type of local initiatives are what you get without a bigger government stopping the small government from doing whatever it wants (local or federal) or a constitutional amendment prohibiting said actions.

    As it should be. Bare necessities provide an environment that encourages and FACILITATES bettering oneself.

    Its a shame its not more obvious to BOTH sides. I always have thought that single people should get bunkbeds in dorms with steel toilet/sinks, tepid water showers, two meals of "Batchelor Chow" a day, and a transit pass. Nobody starves, nobodies homeless. Poor kids trying to put themselves through school would have more energy to study, dirty bums would have a place to be so they'd have no excuse for sleeping in doorways, and the smell would act as an extra incentive to get a job or finish ones degree.

    It should suck to be on the "dole", but it doesn't have to be degrading.

    Families with children are an entirely different issue, but I'm just spitballin here anyway.

    Re: FFX Subsidized Housing Tenants Live Large On Your Dime

    This entire topic is disgusting. Here we have people who are taking our tax dollars - in very difficult economic times - and living large without the slightest concern for where the money came from and with no sense of obligation and certainly with no expressed gratitude. Why can't they learn to sacrifice as long as they are living on the public's nickel like the heads of Delta and GM and Goldmen Sachs and Fannie Mae and AIG and Bank of America and Wells Fargo and JP Morgan and Bancorp, Capitol One, Chrysler, GMAC, Citigroup and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on?

    Of all the things our government wastes money on, subsidized housing is about 937th on my list of things to be concerned about. Especially in a place like Fairfax. I like how the article didn't give any numbers whatsoever to tell us how much this costs or how many people it affects, indicating that they're trying to hide something. Does Fairfax even HAVE any poor people? I work there several days a week and I don't think I've ever seen any poverty there.

    Those folks at least are adding value to the economy by helping provide goods and services others want. Helping to pro... OH I GET what you did there, they aren't paying their fair in taxes cause they all "buddy buddy" with the right government officials.. Oh you're a laugh riot.

    I thought you were making a serious point, carry on.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
