How Saving Matt Damon Costs as much as Trump's Tax Plan
Matt Damon keeps getting himself into serious fictional jams. And his character - heroisms aside - have burdened fictional tax payers nearly a trillion dollars to save him. So I decided compare the cost of saving Matt Damon in fictional tax dollars against the real dollars the new Trump tax plan will cost us.
Between Intersteller, The Martian, Saving Private Ryan, Elysium, Bourne Franchise and several more roles it adds up quickly.
Courage Under Fire: $46m
Saving Private Ryan: $70m
Jason Bourne Films: $520m
Titan A.E.: $75m
Green Zone: $100m
The Martian: $108m
Fictional Damages, Training, Rescues etc (adjusted for inflation)
Courage Under Fire (Gulf War 1 helicopter rescue): $320k
Saving Private Ryan (WW2 Europe search party): $105k
Bourne Franchise (Training, Damage, Assets) 600m
Titan A.E. (Earth evacuation spaceship): $212B
Syriana (Middle East private security return flight): $53k
Green Zone (US Army transport from Middle East): $53k
Elysium (Space station security deployment and damages): $105m
Interstellar (Interstellar spaceship): $527B
The Martian (Mars mission): $211B
TOTAL: $951 955 531 000 (about a Trillion Dollars)
How much real money Trump's new tax bill will be adding to the deficit.
Total: About a Trillion Dollars
Matt Damon's deficit gave us enough to cover a Cutting Edge Anti Terrorisim Spy Program, a Mars Colony, Interstellar Travel.
Trump's real dollars give you enough to buy a new TV so you can watch Matt Damon Movies.
