    The bill did not increase spending in any way.

    Yes, and he may have been right, too.

    Air Traffic Control was absolutely, positively, not running 22% over capacity.

    Ok, whats the reality of not cutting spending ? When you have a President who's completely ignoring the underlying issues of why the wheels are comming off this economy ?

    This was in reality, just another failed attempt by Obama to demonize the GOP and turn his failure into a wedge issue for 2014.

    They don't like it because The Prof actually supplies links with his posts to support his claims. They can only jeer like monkeys from the sidelines, with no support at all.

    Really.....got any type of Link that shows otherwise. As already the Washington Post validated that what Obama's Budget for funding was lower than what their Budget is for the Sequester cuts.

    I did my thesis on air traffic control staffing. The FAA has been behind the curve for years, but manage to paint a rosy picture to Congress anyway. The trick: just change the target number, look, everything's fine! Another clever trick: count trainees. People who aren't even working air traffic. And then my personal favorite: when loss of separation incidents rise by 10%, just change the definition of "loss of separation" to involve a 10% smaller area. What's that? Too flooded with trainees to effectively train any of them? Just bump up your "training target" to 3 years where it used to be 2! Hopefully nobody notices that's a 50% decrease in training efficiency.

    Typical government operation. Why are air traffic controllers federal employees again? Couldn't they be hired by the airports?
