This is wrong.

Funding ought be cut in those Congressional Districts who elect Reps who believe in less government.

Especially those who reside in the 'red states,' which absorb much more Federal funds than they sent to the Treasury, those "welfare states."

Who needs air traffic controllers?? The airlines.

Who supports the airlines? The people who travel.

So why is it the GOVERNMENT that is providing air travelers with the personnel needed for THEM to fly?

Funny how Obama has $123 million for Syrian Rebels.
This is all politics closing control towers. Obama should be impeached!

Another Obama trick to cause pain because the little crybaby didn't get his way. He invented the sequester and now he's using it for cynical political gain.

Wrong, and still, always wrong.
the 'red states' suck from the US Treasury.
The 'blue states' pay more than they get back.

Any way you slice it, the 'red states' would die on the vine without their federal welfare.
