FAA Congressional Clusterf#@k

So it seems Congress is willing to piss away 1.2B because the Repubs don't want to pay 16.5M in air service subsides to rural communities.

Meanwhile some FAA employees are sitting high and dry without pay checks while projects sit idle.

How does Congress justify this?

Senate fails to end costly FAA shutdown - travel - News -

Karma is like this: If we set causes in motion the effects come back to us.

It's a long story, they gave up their right's along time ago to protect their jobs when the Union for the ATC was busted. The FAA hired SABS to cross the picket lines and break the Union. Almost happened with the pilots but we stuck together for the most part. SCABS almost took my job. Long story short the government can do what ever they want and the FAA workers and they have no say so in the matter.
I was APLA for 28+ years.

Penny-wise, pound-foolish. The repubs are idealogical idiots, fueled by the insanity of the tea party ignorance.
