I'm sorry, I got bored reading the entire article. Did they ever specify whether or not money was reimbursed to the company for jet travel, as per company regulations set out specifically in this matter??

David Sims--as a taxpayer I care, Im tired of subsidizing wealthy peoples playtime, and yes I work for a wealthy individual in corporate aviation who scrupulously follows the law for personal use of his aircraft, in the same vein, I dont go "out of pocket"to operate and maintain his aircraft.

Douglas, do you own stock in Coca Cola? If you are a shareholder, then you are subsidizing the costs of that aircraft, though the article does say that she only flies it if her husband needs to go to the same location for business.

Your tax dollars have nothing to do with this.
