One definition of “chutzpah” is murdering your parents and then appealing for mercy from the court because you’re an orphan. Here’s an example:
Hollywood film industry, home of supporters of every whacked-out liberal plan ever concocted, wants another tax break. They finagled a $100 million payoff in 2009; they’re back for more.
They could, of course, urge the repeal of some of the regulations they’ve championed over the years that have made it so expensive to make films in California: environmental, zoning, labor and high taxes, but soaking the middle class taxpayer is so much more natural, and appealing.
Alternatively, if Harvey
Feinstein Weinstein (although to be fair, Feinstein could also fund this) were to sell just one of his mansions he could cover the whole tab. Obama would have to move his next fund raiser to his next supporter’s mansion by the sea a little down the coast, but he has always preached “sacrifice” – here’s his and Harvey’s chance.
