FAA Gets Flack From Airlines

The FAA is getting flack from airlines over the possibility of air traffic control furloughs. The Wall Street Journal reports, the trade group, Airlines For America, has sent a legal memo to FAA officials. They argue the FAA can meet its budget cutting goals without resorting to furloughs. The federal agency has warned that controller furloughs could cause widespread flight delays. Administrator Michael Huerta disputes the airlines' claims that the agency is making passengers political pawns in its budget battles.

They are 100% correct! Sequester, AGAIN, OVER AND OVER I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS, only limits increases over last years' budget! That means, if you ran it last year, you can still run it this year as long as you don't give raises it increase your costs or spending!

Did you get a raise this year?
Last year?
Didn't think so.
