  •  The sequester wasn't recinded for the FAA (1+ / 0-)

    they just allowed some budget flexibility. The FAA still has to absorb the cuts.

    If the Dems had tried to expand the bill it wouldn't have passed. With summer travel fast approaching there was no way the public was going to blame this all on the  GOP. The President and Dems were going to be in the mix. As a frequent flier I am glad this is being fixed. Timely air travel is an important part of our economy.

    •  Children being fed and cancer care are also (3+ / 0-)

      important, I might even say MORE important than slow travel. No one was saying that slower travel was less safe, as a matter of fact that was the reason for the slow down, to keep the system safe.

      So we now have a protected class, the air traveling public, that is more worthy than the poor or hungry, and should bear no pain.
