|Obama's fund raiser last night: $100,000+ of French Champagne! |
President Barack Obama attended a fundraiser at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in Manhattan that featured a champagne tower of 350 bottles worth $105,000 - more than twice the median household income of an American family.Given what Matt Yglesias said about property and redistribution, can we all get a few bottles from Barack Obama? Barack Obama did say he cared about all of us. I am offended I did not get an invite.The tower of $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, known as 'Ace of Spades' because of its label, is a permanent fixture at the club.'It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space,' a 40/40 representative told the New York Post. 'It’s beautiful—breathtaking. It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.'The median income for an American family was $51,413 in 2011.
