So instead of having those who use the airports pay for the upgrades, we're stealing it from future generations by piling up more debt for them.

When are we going to stop the madness? If we are ever going to actually get out of debt, the first thing we have to do is to stop borrowing. That means cutting spending down to the bare minimum to meet the responsibilities of the federal government. Funding for rural Arkansas airport upgrades is neither a responsibility of the federal government, nor is it a necessity.

Wake up America. We can't continue living off the backs of future generations.
