Barak Obama (D-IL), has also ceased using corporate jets and while acknowledging that every lawmaker has relied on this practice, “I am as guilty of this as any number of people,” he explained his reason to cease using the jets by stating, “Look, this is a subsidy, and this is a way of circumventing campaign finance rules.”
