The Pecksniffs of America had nothing but scorn for Congress' vote last week to stop furloughs of air traffic controllers, which were ostensibly mandated under the 2011 Budget Control Act.
With amazing speed the Senate and House passed a bill to stop air traffic controllers from being furloughed, after a week of travel delays felt around the country as a result of President Obama's sequester temper tantrum.
Clearly, President Obama is playing a nasty political game with the air-traffic controller furloughs that have forced severe airline delays across the country.
With flight delays mounting, the Senate approved hurry-up legislation Thursday night to end air traffic controller furloughs blamed for inconveniencing large numbers of travelers. A House vote on the measure could occur on Friday.
If sequestration happens and nobody feels it, does it have a political impact? No, apparently; so two months into what we were told would be Armageddon, the Obama administration is launching a harm offensive.
President Obama is clearly playing a nasty political game with the air traffic controller furloughs that have forced severe airline delays across the country.
Pressure is building to end the delays at the nation's airports - and now, the White House says there is a way out.
Air travelers are concerned about flight delays and cancellations, with mandatory furloughs impacting air traffic controllers and other Federal Aviation Administration employees.
After a yearlong fight, House Republicans land a blow against the politicized National Mediation Board (NMB). After assuming office in 2009, President Obama appointed two pro-union members to the three member NMB, the federal agency that oversees union-employer relations in the transportation industry.
