The Democrats in the Senate want more of your money. Since they can't get the huge theft they want in an election year they are content to do many small thefts to fund things like high speed rail, wind farms and and other loser ideas. Now they're aiming for more money for those crotch shots and gropes.
The Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday moved forward with legislation to increase airline passenger security fees, beating back a GOP attempt to keep them at current levels.
The 2013 Homeland Security appropriations bill would increase one-way fees for passengers from $2.50 to $5 in order to close a budget shortfall at the Transportation Security Administration.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) said the $350 million in funding would otherwise come from taxpayers and argued it is better to stick passengers who rely on TSA with the bill.
"Rely on the TSA"? Huh? Passengers have done more for safety on planes than the TSA. The TSA has made air travel a nightmare and now they want more money to do what, make it more of a nightmare? Maybe they should first work on their own security and find out how many illegal aliens, criminals and potential terrorists are working for them and leave the groping to those who really care.
