World Ending!! FAA Lost Authorization!!

Notice that the birds are dropping from the sky and that the sun turned green?

Oh. You didn't?

Since politicians were not able to come to an agreement over extending the operating authority of the FAA as of midnight tonight, about 4,000 people will be out of work and federal airline ticket tax will no longer be collected. The shutdown will not affect airline safety, but it will stop airlines from collecting about $200million per week in ticket taxes that would help to to fund FAA programs. In the short term, passengers might celebrate since they will be able to save money by not paying taxes, but this means that projects will be delayed--Seattle PI quoted at HotAir

Brick by brick.

Next target: D of Education, whole and entire.
