Well now that HCR is out of the way we can concentrate on the more pressing issues of the US Economy being in the crapper and the Job Situation,
right? No. Democrats Ben Cardin and Mary Landrieu sponsored a bill to prevent the floodgates from opening on other airlines following Spirit
Airlines' example of charging for carry-on luggage.
How about this guys: Do the job of fixing the mess this nation is in and that we are paying you $174,000 per year each and let the airlines that are
stupid enough to charge a fee that patrons can avoid by using a different carrier collapse under their own mismanagement. And when they come hat in
hand and ask for a bailout, inform them that they were to stupid to succeed.
Problem solved, no knee-jerk reactionary legislation to debate, no back room deals to negotiate for votes and most importantly the docket is cleared
for more pressing issues, like doing something before the people do something.
