Remember when the Bushies came to the Congress, demanding $700 billion in 48 hours? And remember how the Congress gave in and took out many of the taxpayer protections?
Citibank is using some of the money to buy a new jet for executives. It's not even American-made. Why would you expect anything different?
The French-made luxury jet seats up to 12 in a plush interior with leather seats, sofas and a customizable entertainment center, according to Dassault's sales literature. It can cruise 5,950 miles before refueling and has a top speed of 559 mph.
There are just nine of these top-of-the-line models in the United States, with Dassault's European factory churning out three to four 7Xs a month.
