This is a LOONY PORK thing...also its a LOONY endorsed thing.......to build airports at the cost of budget busting million in small towns is at issue...Guys like Rockefeller want to bring home the bacon...there are Major airports with in short distances to drive to. They want HICK TOWNS to have there own Airport...But the PORK promised by these Thieves is being denied..Thats why they ,LOONS are Screaming....

The other issue is Unionizing airline workers...this would put Air service at the mercy of UNIONS who would Strike,and threaten transportation.........all And All ITS MONEY and POWER..The Old LOONY way...PORK!...Like LOONS have been doing,and BANKRUPTING the Country...

ENOUGH ALREADY!

Congress refused to authorize FAA spending after Republicans inserted provisions that would make it harder for airline workers to unionize and chopped funding for small community airports.

The GOP-dominated House approved the FAA budget with the new provisions, but it was rejected by the Senate
