For the managers to do less is a theft of public funds.
Wow 1 mile

Don't forget to thank the current failure for the continued charade.

Yes, it was all Bush's fault. The 107th Congress approved the bill that created the TSA by a voice vote in the Senate, and by a vote of 410 - 9 in the House. The 7 subsequent Congresses have refused to address the matter of TSA reform. Neither has Obama.
