Congress ‘Fixes’ Airport Delays by Increasing Deficit

When the White House launched their sequestration scare campaign earlier this year, one of the most hyped consequences was its effect on air travel.Since so many other warnings never were realized, the Obama administration made good on threats last week by ordering 14,750 air traffic controllers on furlough two days a month. As a result, major airports saw flight delays of up to 80 minutes. Granted, some of these effects can be blamed on the weather, but the Beltway’s media message is clear: sequestration is the end of life as we know it.

Despite Rhetoric, FAA Can Handle More Flights With Less Money

Of the extensive parade of horribles the White House has been insisting will occur as a result of the sequestration cuts in early March, impediments to Americans’ ability to travel are among the most ridiculous.
