Wittman Losing Air Traffic Control Tower


Air traffic towers at eight of Wisconsin's small airports are being shut down. The Federal Aviation Administration on Friday announced plans to shut down towers at airports in Eau Claire, Janesville, Kenosha, La Crosse, Mosinee, Oshkosh, and Waukesha, along with the tower at Milwaukee's Lawrence J. Timmerman airport. The decision means pilots flying out of those locations after April 7th will have to coordinate landings and take-offs using a shared radio frequency, without any help from ground-based traffic controllers. Nationwide, 149 air traffic control towers are being closed due to federal budget cuts.

To anyone who blames Obama, maybe if you half-wits would watch something besides Fox Noise, you might get it through your thick right-wing heads that the so-called sequester was the republicans and their "we refuse to work with the president" plan. You tunnel vision bubble dwellers need to quit whining and get a life. YOU LOST!!!!!!

WE ALL LOST!!! Some of us just haven't come to that realization yet. For those of you who understand, let's look into a way to cut the presidents pay and benefits, then the senators, then on to the house. Then we will start getting the government to work for "We the people" instead of having "We the people" work for them!

Don't blame Obama. The Republicians need to talk, they finally acknowledged we don't have a debt problem right now. No need for all the sequester, etc.
