From The Heritage Foundation’s website:

“The White House took issue with us for pointing out that President Obama’s constant hammering of ‘corporate jet owners’ in yesterday’s speech was not exactly consistent with President Obama’s own failed stimulus bill. What irritated them is that our investigative reporter Lachlan Markay wrote:

‘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.

‘Proponents of the tax break lauded it as a means to spur economic activity by encouraging purchases of large manufactured goods (planes). So the president’s statement today -- and his call to repeal that tax break generally -- is either a tacit admission that the stimulus included projects that did not, in fact, stimulate the economy, or an attempt to “soak the rich” without regard for the policy’s effects on the economy.’

“Not so, said the White House. The tax break in question was created in 2002 and merely extended by President Obama.”

So, The Heritage Foundation said that, yes, instead of saying Obama CREATED it, they should have more accurately said that he EXTENDED or APPROVED of the tax break for corporate jets as part of his Stimulus Package.

Could it be accurate to say that this corporate tax break was approved because no one had actually read the entire Stimulus Package until now? SURPRISE! Just as with the Obama’s Health Care bill, we are only now finding out what all the fine print says.

If it weren’t so sad, this could be like Christmas in July. ... You never know what else you are going to discover.
