Just in time for the holidays, Larry David has been saved by the tax cuts for those with a bit more money than the rest of us.

The “Seinfeld” creator took to the New York Times op-ed page and wrote about all of the things he can now afford, thanks to President Obama’s decision to continue the tax cuts George W. Bush put in place.

“Life was good, and now it’s even better,” David sarcastically wrote in the Times. “Thank you, Republicans. And a special thank you to President Obama and the Democrats. I didn’t know you cared.”

David was reportedly worth $242 million in 1998, according to Reuters, putting him in a special class of tax payers that are now able to continue splurging on things like pricey fruit — “After years of coveting them, I’ll finally be able to afford blueberries” — and new electronics — “The first time I’m going to do is get a flat-screen TV. Finally I can throw out the 20-inch Zenith with the rabbit ears.”

David’s other popular television series, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” will continue earning him the big bucks in 2011 when it returns for a new season on HBO.
