More toys for Obama’s One Percent.
Leo DiCaprio has already picked up his $7500 taxpayer subsidy for buying an electric, taxpayer-financed Fisker Karma. Leo has also lent his time to promote the brand, given its recent Made-in-Finland, battery-pack, and money troubles (is a Hollywood multi-millionaire on the public teet really an image boost?).
Now comes teeny-bopper millionaire Justin Bieber who recently bought his own $100k Karma chariot. The teen crooner got hauled over for doing 80 mph in his new steed – which he can afford given his $7500 taxpayer gift.
Sigh. A least the president is sticking to his fairness doctrine: One Percent Senator Carl Levin, D-Michigan, also banked a $7500 taxpayer freebie, even though he only bought a pedestrian, $40,000 Chevy Volt.
