Trump and air traffic control privatization
He's going to try to privatize air traffic control. He's giving a speech about it as I write.

Quote:Under Trump's proposal, the air traffic control system would be separated from the FAA into a new entity, which the White House says is crucial for eliminating flight delays, saving fuel, and increasing safety measures. The entity, says the White House, would not come at any additional cost to the taxpayers.

Looks like his entire infra structure proposal - once thought to be a bridge between republicans and democrats - will be about privatization.

I bet he wrote the proposal on about 1/2 piece of paper, kinda like his budget. Facepalm
(Does he have ANY idea how antiquated that system really is, and what it will cost to upgrade everything ?)

Anything to take the attention off his Russia problems, tweating shit inappropriately at the British, and everything else he can't get done.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Flint Michigan still doesn't have clean water. But we really need to focus on Air Traffic Control.

He says it's a whole week of proposals coming up. I wonder what else he will do to improve infra structure. Maybe someone needs to send him a bag of rocks so he can fill some pot holes.

I'm sure he will be churning them out by the bucketful on Thursday. Anything to draw attention (and air time) away from James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

I’ll be a story in your head, but that’s okay, because we’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? Because it was, you know. It was the best.

It hardly matters. Homeland security will piss off everyone who wants to fly anyway by telling them they can't have their electronic devices.

The millenials would have nervous breakdowns without their phones in their hands.

And can you imagine what they will do with no phones, in a holding pattern above the airport, because the (now privately employed) ATCs have gone on strike? And the betting parlors will be running odds on the company getting controllers back/replaced before some airplane's fuel runs out. And the people on the planes will miss all of the excitement, because .. no phones!

Air traffic control, for when health care is too challenging.
