A few times in his press conference today, President Obama made reference to coporate jets and the people that own them. As he said, this is a class of people who can easily afford slightly increased taxes, and they should if it means the future solvency of the United States.
Conservatives on Twitter weren’t having this! How dare Obama say anything about corporate jets, how could he? How could he single out the uber-wealthy instead of promising to throw a low-class minoritiy into a wood chipper? How the heck could he not?
Frankly, Obama was a little too tepid in singling out the people who tanked our economy and didn’t even get so much as a slap on the wrists.
