B.O. in the Big Apple

So what if President Barack Obama sticks the American people will a bill of $45,000 to $250,000, so he can to take his wife to New York for dinner at the Blue Hill Restaurant in Greenwich Village and see the play Joe Turner’s Come And Gone, the weekend before he puts General Motors into bankruptcy, and announces that the rest of us are going to make big sacrifices whether we like it or not.

Since the Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress are thinking about taxing our employer-paid health care benefits as income, how about this: the transportation and security costs for President and Mrs. Obama’s date nights should be taxed as income. Considering that the salary of the President of the United States is $400,000 per year, the Big Spender might think twice before taking his wife on a $250,000 date in the Big Apple.
