Flying is already miserable. No need to make it hell at 35,000 feet.
After all that Republicans have done, Obama is the one who has to "rebuild trust"?
Just when you thought House Republicans learned a searing lesson from the debt ceiling debacle of last year, they go and do something to prove they are insane.
There is nothing wrong with advocating for the ideal, but when it comes time to vote, the GOP has to deal with reality.
