Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), the co-chair of the Joint Committee on Deficit Reduction, will be holding a fundraiser for his JEBFund leadership PAC on Tuesday with Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio).
According to Politico Influence, $5,000 will get you “admittance to all 2011 JEBFund events.”
That’s right ladies and gentleman, for the low, low price of $5,000 you too can have a season pass to the supercommittee co-chair.
The supercommittee isn’t scheduled to vote on its plan until November 23rd, so that’s plenty of time for lobbyists to urge the Congressman to keep special tax breaks for hedge funds, oil subsidies, and any other special carve outs in place. A steal of a deal!
What, you don’t have $5,000 to spend to talk about the supercommittee? It’s cool. I’m sure he’ll answer your call or email. Well, his staff will. Eventually.
