    There is no way the POTUS can't sign this bill.

    As a very frequent flier I applaud Congress for stepping in and fixing this problem. Anyone who thinks the blame for flight delays would be placed primarily on the GOP is dreaming. Fliers are blaming the President and both parties.

      so I may benefit from it.

      But I'm angry that this gets passed so easily whereas 90% approved stuff does not.  The universal background checks.

        If this isn't fixed it will be on the news every day. The story line will not be that the sequester is bad, or that the GOP is at fault. We can't be the party that is for long waits at the airport, the optics would be terrible. However, it is definitely frustrating that Congress can move so quickly when it is in their self-interest.
