Let’s Just Privatize the Blue States, OK?

LET’S JUST PRIVATIZE THE BLUE STATES, OK?….From the Wall Street Journal yesterday:

House Aviation panel chairman [John] Mica, scrambling to pass a proposal allowing privatization of some air-traffic control towers, tells Republicans he would exempt those in their states in exchange for votes. “I have a bill to pass,” he says; the proposal is in a larger bill reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration. Democrats aren’t given the same offer: “They want to scuttle the bill,” a Mica aide says.

It’s good to see that the party of honor and integrity is back in charge.
