This my friends is where the tax cuts for the rich go.
Not towards creating jobs, but to pay for expensive birthday parties so they can hire people like Ludacris and Snooki to perform...

That's actually really cheap when you consider all the billionaires that have hired people like Christina Aguilera to come sing a song at their party and paid like a million dollars.

I don't believe it. Nobody would pay Ludacris more than ten bucks.
