Republican, ********* Terrorists, still wanting to hold America hostage

Chuck Schumer: Passage Of FAA Bill Shows Republicans Suffer Backlash From Obstruction

First Posted: 9/15/11 07:07 PM ET Updated: 9/15/11 07:07 PM ET

WASHINGTON -- The Senate narrowly averted another shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration Thursday, passing a temporary funding bill that Democrats saw as evidence Republicans are feeling heat from the public over obstructionist tactics.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) had threatened to block the bill after the GOP-led House added it to a larger temporary extension of highway funding that was set to expire on Friday.

Coburn argued that the part of the highway bill that funds road beautification was wasteful pork, and wanted it stripped. Ultimately, he settled for an agreement to let states shift that money to nuts and bolts repair projects when the long-term highway bill comes up. The short-term bill passed easily, 92 to 6.

If he hadn't backed down, it could have brought flashbacks to the unpopular three-week FAA closure last month that halted numerous construction projects and put some 70,000 people out of work. It also cost the government about $200 million a week in lost tax revenue -- and that was all after the public was already angry over the the near default brought on by the battle over raising the nation's debt limit.

A Bloomberg poll released Thursday found that the public is laying the bulk of the blame for such governmental gridlock on the GOP, with some 45 percent of Americans saying so.

well democrats see things that aren't there then! what does this article say?? that GOP led house added this to a bill, that GOP senator Coburn opposed it and got it changed to shift $ from cosmetic to structure. gee there is a novel approach.
nowhere does it mention the TEA party and the only "obstruction" was in the minds of the democrats.
it looks to me like Senator Coburn needs a high five for trying to cut unnecessary spending and another for at least getting it switched to needful projects. and IF this article is correct then the house GOP needs a slapdown for slipping this in.
another thanks to Senator Coburn is needed for exposing this then.

this is just more of the same ********* terrorism. the ********* led republicans are doing exactly what they said they would do, shut this government down. the ********* led republicans threatened not only to shut down the FAA, but also the planned parenthood, the VA beneficiaries, Medicare, Medicare disability, Medicaid, programs for the poor and needy, things America were built on (helping the needy, the poor, the disabled), were all held hostage during the debt ceiling debacle, simply because the rich just want to get richer, and not pay their fair share of taxes. nothing else matters to the ********* led republicans, but to save their 'holy grail' entitlement, the tax cuts for the rich.
