The Obama Regime Deliberately Punishes Airline Passengers to Score Political Points


Unreal. These weren’t cuts. Stop treating Americans like they’re stupid. Well, I guess a lot of them did vote for Obama.
Check it out:

How many of you have encountered airline delays? They’re popping up all over the place out there in greater and greater frequency. And remember that back on April 20th of 2011 — this is two years ago — they passed the Passenger Bill of Rights that would limit the amount of time you could spend on the tarmac. Remember all these people that ended up for four hours or longer on a jet. The excuse was, well, they couldn’t find a gate or we couldn’t get a departure slot or whatever, and the airline wouldn’t let ’em off the airplane so we passed the Passenger Bill of Rights, which limited tarmac time.

Ray LaHood, the transportation secretary, said airline passengers have a right to be treated fairly. And now the president has furloughed air traffic controllers. And you know what they’re doing? Some of them have been reassigned to run unions. Diana Furchtgott-Roth has a column in the DC Examiner today, about 11 or 12, I forget how many pilots who’ve been furloughed and air traffic controllers, that have been sent over to various relevant unions to do union leadership duty. I’m telling you, this is a purposely caused situation. This is chaos, and passengers are being punished for the sequester. And it’s all being done to blame the Republicans.

There’s no need for any air traffic control delays. There’s no need. There are plenty of ways to accommodate the sequester without this kind of behavior which is impacting the way people live their daily lives. And as an added bonus, as far as Obama and the Democrats are concerned, it’s making it look like government is necessary for everything to run on time. When in fact the lesson to be learned here is that big government, central planning, we’re told at least they could make the trains run on time. That’s what Mussolini did. That’s why they loved him. This bunch can’t even make the planes run on time. They can’t make the trains run on time, except they’re doing it on purpose to frustrate passengers, to create chaos, to punish passengers, if you will.

You watch, before it’s all over, it’s gonna be the fault of the Republicans for causing the sequester to happen, for not being bipartisan, for not agreeing with Obama to stave this off. So two years ago it was the Passenger Bill of Rights, limits tarmac time. Now it is deliberately punishing passengers to score political points. Sorry, folks. That’s what it is. That’s where we are.
