Did the agency create this scenario to put pressure on politicians to increase funding? “It’s possible,” Mack said. “Or they could just be completely inept.”
Others theorize that TSA has created the chaos to motivate people to pay $85 for the agency expedited “pre-check” program.
The number of people registering for pre-check have nearly doubled, to about 8,300 people a day.
Here are the theories that I'm aware of:
TSA wants a bigger budget.
TSA wants to force people into their "pre-check" program.
TSA wants to hire more people after losing 600 employees (may also fall under bigger budget).

if you are still flying, then why are you complaining?
Obviously, voting for hope and change isn't going to do it. and armed revolt seems a bit premature at this point. So your only voice on this must be heard through protest.
If you are still flying, then you are supporting the TSA. Bottom line.

I don't understand this argument.
How else do you presume I visit family 6.5K miles away without getting on a plane?
