The Bush tax cuts have been extended for the wealthiest earners, and one of those wealthy earners is Larry David. “There is a God!” the Seinfeld co-creator proclaims in an op-ed for the New York Times. “I’m the last person in the world I’d want to be beside, but I am beside myself! This is a life changer, I tell you. A life changer!” For example, on his next vacation to Cabo, he’s going to fly first class instead of slumming it in coach. “First class!” he marvels. “Somebody told me they serve warm nuts up there and call you ‘mister.’ I might not get off the plane!”

And when he lands, he’ll really indulge—no more sleeping on a cot in his kids' hotel room. “Maybe I’ll even get some fancy bottled water from the minibar.” Back home, he’s changing his diet—“After years of coveting them, I’ll finally be able to afford blueberries. Did you know they have a lot of antioxidants, which prevent cancer? Cancer! This tax cut just might save my life. Who said Republicans don’t support health care?”
