Obama: ‘I Deserve A Gold Watch’
President Obama is claiming credit for Boeing making the largest private aircraft sale in history with Indonesia’s Lion Air.
But, according to Reuters, the American tax payer should really get the credit:
The U.S. government is offering loan guarantees to help the low-cost carrier buy 230 jets, under a system operating on both sides of the Atlantic to promote exports of strategic goods such as the jetliners built by Boeing or rival Airbus. In theory, it means U.S. taxpayers could pick up part of the tab if the deal falls through.
