Blame President Obama for the Delays in Air Traffic
The sequester was his idea after all. Obama in one of the egregious examples of poorly thought out solutions, wanted to increase taxes and a higher debt cap but didn't want to cut anything from the budget. Well of course the Republicans wasn't going to allow the increases without cutting so what did Obama do, he proposed the sequester. The Republicans agreed to it and this is how we end up with all these flight delays. And it doesn't have to be this way. Obama had sent out a missive to all the agencies that when it comes to the furlough, they were to make it as painful as possible. It's ridiculous. The sequester is basically a 5% over a ten year period. This was done to lower our debt by 1 billion dollars. Well guess what, under Obama, the government has overspent one billion dollars each year for the last three years. So whatever the sequester was designed to do in lowering the national debt, the Obama administration has made sure that the debt has increased. It's all politics and every traveler out there should let the Obama administration know that this sort of nastiness from the supposed leader of our country would make things difficult for us so that he can make a point. Go to the White House website and make your displeasure known.
