Memo To @PressSec On FAA Furloughs: “The Obama Administration Made A Terrible Miscalculation”

- April 26, 2013

Chicago Tribune: “Somewhere Between The Oval Office And A Snarled Airport Near You, The Stunt Pilots In The Obama Administration Made A Terrible Miscalculation.” (Editorial, “The Stunt Pilots Misread Their Gauges,” Chicago Tribune, 4/26/13)

  • Chicago Tribune: “Most Citizens Are Able To Read. They're Seeing Numerous Articles In The Public Prints Explaining How The Federal Aviation Administration's Layoff Scheme Created A Crisis That Simply Doesn't Have To Be.” (Editorial, “The Stunt Pilots Misread Their Gauges,” Chicago Tribune, 4/26/13)
     
  • Chicago Tribune: “This Whole Exercise Appears To Have Been An Effort To Demonstrate That The Federal Enterprise Cannot Survive Cuts To The Growth Of Spending.” “That's key: Over the year and a half since President Barack Obama signed the law that required spending curbs through sequestration in 2013, you haven't seen the FAA, or its parent the Transportation Department, or its parent the White House, trying to absorb a relatively small budget cut in ways that would least inconvenience fliers and least imperil the U.S. economy. Quite the opposite: This whole exercise appears to have been an effort to demonstrate that the federal enterprise cannot survive cuts to the growth of spending.” (Editorial, “The Stunt Pilots Misread Their Gauges,” Chicago Tribune, 4/26/13)
     
  • Chicago Tribune: “Got That? Democratic Senators Aren't Rallying 'Round. No, They Want The Democratic President To Stop Inconveniencing Their Constituents.” (Editorial, “The Stunt Pilots Misread Their Gauges,” Chicago Tribune, 4/26/13)
     
  • Chicago Tribune: “The Overarching Story Here Is The Obama Administration's Inability To Convince Americans That The Trajectory Of Federal Spending Can't Be Lowered.” “The overarching story here is the Obama administration's inability to convince Americans that the trajectory of federal spending can't be lowered. Since the New Year's avoidance of the fiscal cliff, the White House has behaved as if the tax increases in that deal shouldn't be balanced with budget reductions. That refusal to reach the second half of the bargain is why the sequester kicked into gear March 1.” (Editorial, “The Stunt Pilots Misread Their Gauges,” Chicago Tribune, 4/26/13)

Politico Headline: “Democrats Blink First On Aviation Cuts” (Kathryn A. Wolfe and Burgess Everett, “Democrats Blink First On Aviation Cuts,” Politico, 4/25/13)

  •  “Democrats Caved In And Agreed To Allow The Federal Aviation Administration To Keep Air Traffic Control Towers Running At Close To Full Capacity. All It Took Was A Few Thousand People Standing In Line At The Airport.” “The White House and Democrats in Congress argued for months against a piecemeal fix to the budget problems caused by the sequester. But on Thursday, Democrats caved in and agreed to allow the Federal Aviation Administration to keep air traffic control towers running at close to full capacity. All it took was a few thousand people standing in line at the airport.” (Kathryn A. Wolfe and Burgess Everett, “Democrats Blink First On Aviation Cuts,” Politico, 4/25/13)
