Who Needs Jobs When We Have Class Warfare Instead?

If Obama cares so much about jobs, why does everything he proposes destroy them? Isn't that kinda, well, counterproductive?

His latest brilliant idea was to raise revenues by increasing taxes on corporate jets. Sure, Barry, it sounds like a great way to put the screws to our class enemies. But what about the mechanics, pilots, and flight attendants? Or the noble workers who manufacture the planes? They're the proletariat, the good people -- why are you hurting them?

Oh, and as the Mandarin points out, the new tax would raise a pittance. Hey, as long as it punishes the fat cats it'll be worth it, right?

  1. I was stuck in Newport, RI for my last two years in the Navy in `88-`89 when daddy Bush put his luxury tax into effect.

    The people who used to make and upgrade yachts were fired or put on short hours because no one was buying or spending any money for stuff like that.
