Of course, NOBODY in the MSM will challenge the need for this. It's clear President Obama believes messing with air traffic is the hot button that will get Americans to blame Republicans. We'll see. The more unbending Republicans have been, the more desperate Obama has gotten. What Republicans need to do though is go beyond what Jim Sensenbrenner does in this story and actually detail how else this could be done.
Finding less painful cuts is low hanging fruit. So far in this debate Republicans have been willing to say the fruit exists, but haven't had the ambition to go pick it.
