Mic check. MIC CHECK!
It kills me to say this because besides seeing a million faces and rocking them all, the man is a national treasure. But sadly, it’s true. Jon Bon Jovi is stealing from the middle class.
Jon Bon Jovi, he who has been a member of the 1% that his fellow Obama followers hate and demonize since Mrs. Brodigan walked into Sears in 1987 to buy her son a copy of “Slippery When Wet,” gets a government hand out from the government…to raise bees. He only paid $100 in property taxes last year! He probably paid less money than his secretary! THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE! THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!
And he’s not the only Obama supporting 1% celebrity who gets hand outs from the government either…
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) identified several individuals receiving farm payments “whose professions had nothing to do with farming or agricultur[e]…These individuals include Scottie Pippen and Ted Turner, respectively. Millionaires also receive state tax breaks on farm land. For example, Jon Bon Jovi paid property taxes of only $100 last year on his extensive real estate holdings in New Jersey that he uses to raise bees. At the same time, Bruce Springsteen received farm subsidies because he leases his property to an organic farmer,” the report explains.
Now, I think we’re all in agreement that corporate welfare/closing loop holes is one area that both sides can compromise and work together on. Sen. Tom Coburn is one of the few serious legislators in Washington. This should be an opening, except for the fact that Barack Obama is up for re-election.
That being said, riddle me something: why in the blue hell isn’t the GOP exploiting this? The Democrat Party wants to make tax cuts for the rich a campaign issue? Well, here a few of the vile rich who keeping getting hand outs for the government. The fact that they’re hypocritical celebrities who will be out in full force endorsing Obama next year makes it a bonus.
We should remember this the next time Barack Obama is in New Jersey at a fundraiser and ask him, once he’s done demogauging, if he could please walk over to Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen’s table and ask them for the money they stole from us back.
