We all know politicians have no shame. However, who would think that they were so shameful that they would actually throw a hissy fit because they had to wait in line like normal people to catch a plane?

They held a special session to keep the air traffic controllers working — a situation they created with the sequester — so they can be home in time for dinner.

Just as shameful is President Barack Obama’s willingness to go along with and sign this monstrosity. Obama should have told them, “No, not unless we do something to help the rest of the country get through these hard times.” He folded to the rich and powerful and turned his back on the weak and vulnerable.

Who is advising Obama? Didn’t they tell him how disgraceful this would look? Oh well, I guess winning re-election didn’t mean he would actually grow a backbone.
