Bon Jovi helps White House launch summer jobs initiative
By Alicia M. Cohn - 01/05/12 01:40 PM ET
Rock icon Jon Bon Jovi visited the White House on Thursday.
The singer tweeted about his visit and also participated in a Twitter chat with Jon Carson, the director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. Carson tweeted a picture of the meeting.
Bon Jovis visit was meant to raise awareness for the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundations participation in a new White House initiative announced Thursday.
The White House issued a call to action it named "Summer Jobs+," part of President Obamas We cant wait campaign against a gridlock-prone Congress.
The initiative is a show of cooperation between the federal government and private sector entities with the goal of creating 180,000 employment opportunities for low-income youth in the summer of 2012. The program will include a Summer Jobs+ Bank, a one-stop digital resource for the digital generation, the statement says.
Bon Jovi is also a member of Obama's White House Council for Community Solutions.
The rolls of those with farm-assessed land in New Jersey read like a who's who in the world of high finance, business and entertainment. Those in the rich-and-famous category with approved applications for tax breaks in 2009 and 2010 include:
Rock star Jon Bon Jovi, Middletown: 7.1 acres, $104 in taxes in 2010.
I mean Stevie Ray Vaughan is dead, and we can’t get Jon Bon Jovi in a helicopter? Come on, folks. “Get on that helicopter John. Shut the &^$# up and get on that helicopter! There’s a hair dresser in there. Yeah, go ahead in there, yeah yeah.”

Isn’t this the guy that ran a MULTI MILLION DOLLAR CHARITY SCAM?? Yes it is.
So now we are going to run Fraud Charities from the White Hut??
I have a tax question:
IF they find all these ‘summe jobs’ for these ‘yutes’, do all these kids get to file for Earned Income Tax Credit when they file their income tax returns???
EITC can run as high as $4500, IIRC. One useless kid I know can hardly hold a job, but files his ‘taxes’ each year & gets PAID more money than anything near what he ‘paid in’.
"Rock icon Jon Bon Jovi visited the White House on Thursday."Exsqueeze me, 'Rock Icon'?!?
