A Congressional Fly-Bye

Sometimes we wonder, but the power of the American people is alive and well. Before recessing for August the house approved purchasing additional executive jets, in excess of a request by the Air Force for replacement planes, that would have been used by it’s members and families. Given the timing and the economic mood of the country these blantant bill add-ons drew the ire of the American people and Congress has said Uncle. It appears the original planes requested by the Air Force will be approved.
