House approves measure to end air traffic control furloughs

(CNN) - The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday passed a measure aimed at ending budget-related air traffic controller furloughs that were blamed for widespread flight delays this week.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said earlier Friday that President Barack Obama would sign the bill, which the Senate passed Thursday night.

    Sandy – This sequester was in fact Obama's idea.

    Sorry, Cali- no one buys that- The bill was written by House Republicans, and passed unanymously by Republicans. Only and idiot would believe the Sequester Bill was in anyway a Democratic thing.

    Delusion gets you no where. Face facts, Republicans have no policy except get elected. When you can prove the Bill wasn't written by House Republicans you'll be on to something, meanwhile, you're just sticking your head in the sand and wishing your party made any sense at all.

    Obamacare - a disaster or as Democrat Max Baucas puts it "a train wreck".

    Obama Sequester – a disaster.

    4.5 years of record unemployment.

    The fundamental transformation of our country into a bankrupt disaster proceeds on pace.

    It's obvious that all these diehard liberals think Obama can literally do nothing wrong.

    They treat him like he's the second coming.

    Hey Calif., if you screech your nonsense a little louder maybe the hillbillies in the Ozarks will hear it. They are one of the few groups still listening to your kind of garbage.
