    The FAA gets money through the normal budget process, but also some of those taxes on your ticket help fund it, as well.  Local airport fees are also supposed to help, at least for local airport improvements, but often cities use at least some of that money for their police and fire department, and other infrastructure projects.

        A bunch of privilaged, elitist assholes whining about lack of service. When they realize they've shot themselves in the foot, it's too late to fix the problem and they turn on each other as they starve.
