As many transportation security officers fail to show up for work, reserve employees are being flown in to bolster depleted ranks at some airports. Transportation experts and elected officials have begun asking how much longer the air-travel system can continue running safely because of the government shutdown.

If there was ever a way to let 'terrorists' into the country, this was it. Tired of all the winning yet?

If the Air Traffic Controllers (even though it's nominally 'illegal') strike for two-days.... ....McConnell will be forced to cave.

The Republicans could kick McConnell out and name a new Senate Majority Leader in under 2 minutes. The fact that they don't makes them all guilty.

They do not need to risk their jobs by striking. They just need to stop borrowing money in order to get into work. Call in and say they have no money to buy fuel or transportation tickets to get to work.
