GOP: Obama Admin Wanted To Inflict Pain With Flight Delays
The whole sequester has been nothing but Obama making things look bad.
Check it out:
The Republican chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on Saturday accused the Obama administration of purposefully wanting to inflict pain on the public through flight delays.
“There are some in the Obama administration who thought inflicting pain on the public would give the president more leverage to avoid making necessary spending cuts, and to impose more tax hikes on the American people,” Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) said during the Republican weekly address.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began furloughing employees this week, including air traffic controllers, as a part of automatic budget cuts required by the sequester. The furloughs resulted in long flight delays for passengers across the country.
The White House said the law forced the FAA to furlough the employees, but Shuster argued the administration had more flexibility.
