Mickey Mouse -- hometown airport isn't making bouncing around anymore with Christine TSA's -- Orlando's Sanford airport.
Is trying to oust the government screeners and replace them with private workers is a move.
That Steve Forbes says will actually speed up security lines and make flying cheaper how also Steve.
Well what it does have competition way to get people are trying to do things better in -- more effective way she'll have to raise your hands and those crazy things into your pockets and all that stuff.
And admit the bottom line is make it faster make it safer and competition will do it and you'll end up having screeners -- probably be higher -- better trained.
Spot the terrorists and then get get you through if you're not -- terrorists.
Rick -- do you think it would work.
Well I like hearing -- say that private industry -- higher pay than the government is usually complain that government pays too much.
-- the answer this question is not so much -- we go private or do we go public.
The answer this question is can we find a more effective way to do this.
I thought that -- -- you were showing us in the beginning with the security line over JFK who knew it was for Cavuto show.
We've we've got to do a better job you were shooting a really great.
It doesn't it doesn't really work to do with the way we're doing they don't catch that that things going through and I don't know that new systems for doing well.
GMAC the fact is is that the private sector hold on its equity.
It's it's not necessarily.
That the pay scale that -- where the government it's it's all of the bureaucratic excess that makes government workers cost more -- and yeah I here to San and it's also whether they will make us safer with a profit motive make us safer and more.
And have a more efficient airport screening process -- these you know government paid bridge troll bureaucrats.
Who are basic.
We want him to be unionize the slowdown -- processor -- look at this is working in Montana.
And it's working other parts of country -- anyway you know even if they privatize these two these screeners.
They Homeland Security can still reject that moved to privatize and if you privatizing candidate governor regulated anyway so why not try it Victoria what do you think.
Well I have to agree with with brick which I I generally hate doing but here's why I don't think more people might think it's it doesn't feel that -- direct hit it it's the process right so even if you took private workers in here.
You're not fixing the problem which is how we approach the problem I don't see why he did that it's even worse now that we're forcing people to pay for -- to -- -- every one is -- as much as they can onto a plane and that makes the security process even more lengthy.
So it's it's worse but I don't think it's the people.
John Candy we do have an example out there LL it used to big government airline now I think the Government of Israel owns about 13% of its us mostly private.
Airlines they have terrific security private and boy oh boy they have a great -- -- -- they've had one hijacking their entire existence.
Absolutely -- why would you want someone with such low ambition is to want to work from the TSA to protect you from terrorists better to leave airlines to do it in the with whoever profit motive.
To get people through as quickly as possible safely as possible -- airlines do a bad job.
They lose they lose that passengers -- the TSA does a bad -- invades our space nothing happens when we give them more money.
And Dennis which one do you think would save more money would be the private sector solution or what we have now there's no question that -- bit.
Solutions are always more efficient always more -- -- -- okay.
And I'm glad we're having this debate today because you know what it really shows guys we've largely -- a lot since 9 elevenths but the morning of 9/11.
When we saw those hijacking.
I instantly thought oh my gosh we didn't have.
Government military officers in charge of airport security I think a lot of split this baby I think we -- -- I have Marines -- Navy SEALs in New York Washington LA them big targets.
But for places like Orlando Sanford privatize if you want Steve what about bad idea having having the military come in airports to assist in the big cities.
Up the military is there to protect us from known enemies and have them protectionist down in an airport Marines have better things to do than that.
I want him out out of places where the and it either as they retired I sat retired.
Retired very -- -- can't believe they want a constitutional -- comic taught us that you.
Putting -- military nearly brought sergeant getting -- -- TSA line almost.
No I let me let -- bring expected -- -- because -- -- all -- -- on there -- hunger I think you're a fan of what el Al does -- mean you can't argue with their track record.
And they are primarily a private sector operations so what -- I don't follow -- example.
Actually I actually am I'm a huge fan of what el Al does -- and I hope Liz can travel hell out.
Because she's not gonna ever be able to get to a security line again after what she just called those federal workers written what -- -- free throw after -- craft and but all my Christmas typically isn't el -- showing us at the private sector can do it better.
Clearly el -- does not have people like that they do a much better job they have one -- two people.
That interview people before they got on the plane not to be fair you're dealing with far fewer flights but they have proven that make a lot of what I -- they have people and it works it works much much better than this crazy system we have they just an example angry -- -- But if you have the private sector work first you have lines where if you pass a certain test you can get through quickly instead of just talking about it on end.
And you would get new machines and technology they'll get the process bastards and their interest is every -- interest.
Victoria go ahead why -- we used to be that much you know when you're -- that when.
When you talk about Al Al you're you're talking about profiling and they do it very effective thing -- but I don't see us doing that it seems somehow un American.
I just don't well happening here -- -- Don't let you know plus -- Fact that they they spent three hours talking to each individual -- -- it may not how rational that -- but again there's no free admits that the government and does everything twice as expensive and half as efficient.
I think this is.
