Obama had nothing to do with that. Here, I'll quote a little bit from the article since you obviously didn't read it.

" The state is providing $16-million (U.S.) in financial support to go along with $600-million the company is spending to develop the Learjet 85 midsize jet and expand Learjet's Wichita facility. The city and Sedgwick County have already pledged $1-million each in incentives for the project. The government incentives are tied to the job creation numbers."

Oddly enough, I didn't read Obama's name anywhere in the article.

So you're saying that Obamanomics is benefiting the rich? I thought he was supposed to help out the little guy.
