A story about predictions?...How about a story regarding facts once it happens? If you think it's bad now with a cut in just the INCREASES in annual spending, just wait until your president borrows and spends this country into complete bankruptcy...A long line at the airport is the last thing we'll all have to worry about...

What a bunch of houey! Subsidies to farmers, oil companies, and corporations are left untouched, and instead cutting expenses that are most affect the average joe.

While they're waiting in I recommend that airline air passengers reflect on whether they want to support a party that spent $250 million renovating Union Depot, which gets about 10 people meandering through it per day, while depriving thousands of taxpaying flyers of adequate service. Are they in favor of capitalism or a Soviet-style command economy?

Flying is no longer fun. Just another reason to avoid it like the plague!

Make sure and send a letter to Obama, Al and Amy. They should be showing leadership in creating a balanced budget.

You want to save time? Abolish the more than completely useless TSA. That will more than make up for the hours that ATC needs.

TSA stands for thousands standing around. I think some cuts are needed. Reduction in controllers? Please child. Most are lucky to put in 3.5 hours at the scope a day right now. A few less won't hurt anyone.
