    • On July 03, 2011, by RAVaught - First, I refuse to support any bill that grants any additional money to private industries. They are PRIVATE industries, i.e. not the responsibility or purview of the Federal Government. Secondly, the Fed has already wasted enough of our tax dollars and violated enough of our civil liberties via TSA and the Department of Homeland Security in airports. Cut the spending to these programs. Quit violating our 4th Amendment rights for some nebulous ideal of security that never materializes. When you dial back those programs you will have more than enough money to pay for airport improvements.
