The whole thing is BOGUS. Telling the FAA that they can only add half a billion to their next years budget doesn't equate with shutting down existing towers and airports. That is like saying "Well, gas will only be going down 4 cents a gallon ovr the next year. We better garage the car for a while"..Stupid. He has already used that sorry excuse to bring home half of the Med fleet for "servicing and upgrades and refueling". Some of those carriers weren't due for 8 more years. But it's HIS own political point.
