    I didn't answer the poll because it's faulty. If you're asking "Should the public pay for Congress Critters to fly first class" I'd say, no, except for extended flights of more than 5-6 hours, which might include our Hawaiian and Alaskan Critters and most flights overseas, when that rare occasion arises.

    Why isn't the poll "Should the President and members of Congress be required to fly coach?"
    Considering what's required for Presidential protection and keeping him in touch with the world all the time, I'd just as soon support Air Force One.

    I agree with this. I have flown with many high ranking politicians in coach including Patty Murray and former and then Gov. Gary Locke.
