Putting Che in referrence with any member of the human race, let alone the tea party? The mass murdering dictator supreme? Oh my! Mr Benson has lost touch with reality.
Let’s see now. Republicans wanted $16.5 million (that’s with an “M”, not “B”) cut from rural airport subsidies, and (oh by the way) legislation pushed by Delta Airlines to gut unions. Democrats said no, so Republicans defunded the FAA, furloughing 4,000 employees and idling 74,000 contract jobs. Lost revenuse cost $30 million a day. And you guys blame the Democrats? It’s ok for billions in other subsidies, but not $16.5 million for rural airports? Hypocrits.
