    Note: There are $2.7 billion in non-personnel Operations costs that should be examined before FAA personnel are furloughed.

        Operations covers both personnel costs AND non-personnel costs – such as contracts, travel, supplies, and consultants

        Examples of non-personnel costs include:
            Nearly $500 million for consultants
            $325 million in supplies and travel
            The FAA has 46 aircraft that cost $143 million to operate

    The threat to our way of life comes from corporations, and the solution is to shrink corporations while freeing government from corporate control.

    •  okay, then the GOP (0+ / 0-)

      can cut their own staff, since Senators and Congresspeople should be capable of writing their own letters and speeches, answering their own phones and mail, and getting from home to work and back on public transit.

      (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)
