So I am incredibly disturbed that the rich got taken care of in the sequestration. The most important thing is that the rich should not have to wait. I think historically this was a mistake by the oligarchy. I have the sense this is a real "Let them eat cake" moment. But there is something that is eating away at me. What exactly is the FAA going to cut to make up for what they were going to save on furloughs? From what I can tell there is no new revenue stream. Is the FAA sitting on some pile of unspent money. I was under the impression that human hours made up about 70% of their budget. That means that a really big chunk is going to be taken out of the other 30%. I really, really want to know what is in that other 30%. Is it updating infrastructure. I really, really don't want my kid falling out of the sky in ten years so David Gregory doesn't have to wait for a flight today. Maybe I am missing something. But the thing nobody is talking about it how the FAA is going to make up this money. I think we have a right to know.

Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
- One diary daily maximum.
- Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
- No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
- Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
- Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
- Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
- Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Please begin with an informative title:
