What the FAA is telling us by their actions is that there is nothing LESS important in their budget than the air traffic controllers. EVERYTHING else has a higher priority or they wouldn't cut them. Does that sound like a well-run agency that knows how to prioritize, or one that is playing political games to make cuts as painful as possible?

"In the past five years, the FAA's operating budget has grown by 10.4 percent while the number of domestic commercial flights has fallen 13 percent." --------- That pretty much sums it all up. Has there been any cuts in the number of controllers since the number of flights has dropped?

This furlong will result in Half a billion dollars. Now, multiply that for the other THOUSANDS of departments and see if the numbers add up to the sequestration numbers. Someone is keeping his promise to make this as painful as possible for you, the american people.
