Republican Weekly Address

George Wenschhof

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began furloughing employees this week, including air traffic controllers, as a part of automatic budget cuts required by the sequester.

The furloughs resulted in long flight delays for passengers across the country.

Representative Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) attempts to put the blame on President Obama by saying "There are some in the Obama administration who thought inflicting pain on the public would give the president more leverage to avoid making necessary spending cuts, and to impose more tax hikes on the American people."

Congress passed legislation this week restructuring the $600 million FAA cuts to avoid the flight delays. President Obama has said he will sign it.
