Not only is the FAA receiving more money this year than ever before (even with the sequester), if memory serves roughly half of its personnel are non-essential. The President, however, chose to furlough only essential personnel to punish the American people.
Have we ever had a President who intentionally tries to inflict pain on the American people?
And have we ever had a media that refuses to report upon this and dozens of other arguably impeachable offenses (e.g., refusing to enforce immigration law, refusing to answer for the murder of an Ambassador, sending thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels, etc.)?
Those are both rhetorical questions.
