  1. Let me gets this straight. It is CONGRESS who made the FAA cut back and it is Marion Blakey who obliged to do so. Now they are threatening the airlines to rearrange their schedules or “the government might enforce flight limits.”

    It didn’t mean anything to congress when the air traffic controllers told them 5 years ago, they were going to run into a problem of shortage of controllers, and that it would bring on massive delays. Congress doesn’t even care if a controller gets mistreated.

    But the first time they are on a plane and have to be delayed they want to magically snap their fingers and have the problem solved.

    I have a message for congress first say thank you to Congressman John Mica he was great, all those years in getting things cut back, privatized, consolidated, and making these delays possible and endangering lives. Say thank you to Marion Blakey for the support she gave on mistreating professionals and causing delays.

    Congress I have another message. You and Marion created this mess but the air traffic controllers are professionals and will not take any chances. They still believe in their motto “SAFETY FIRST”

  3. Reagan sure knew how to deal with air traffic people. Bah why are these people government employees anyway? They should have to deal with market forces like the rest of us. The whole reason everything is messed up is like the author says the government is running things. Government employees for the most part are leeches anyway and should not be allowed to vote (vested interest in sprawling useless government).
