Airline Profits


If there was ever any doubt of the GOP/Business coalition vs the American citizen battle outcome this story should dispel that doubt.

  Once the GOP effectively defunded the FAA, that gave the airlines a green light to raise fares and pocket the money that would normally go into the national treasury. This is a twofer for the GOP since it blocks possible union activity and also rewards their airline political contributors with more profit.
