Other deadlock over series over flights -- -- on these.
Mandatory spending cuts congress just passing a bill today to give the FAA -- flexibility to spend a quarter billion dollars.
To keep flight controllers on the job of the president says is gonna sign it.
But didn't the White House have that flexibility all along in other words Mike Huckabee is saying -- you didn't have to go right to the top to cut.
Controllers but that's exactly what they do.
That's exactly what they did because this was a manufactured crisis they were supposed to cut 4% they.
-- go 10% of the flight controllers in the busiest airports in America.
Not to small rural airports it probably wouldn't have seen the effect.
But the busiest airspace in the country like new York and LA and and the places where was -- inflict the most damage why was that Don.

And now we're we don't -- this because bottom line if we're taking back cuts essentially.
Then the cuts we had which were meager to begin with in the -- and it.
That doesn't inspire confidence for future cut.
It's well it doesn't except for the fact that I think it's shown the White House I hope so.
That you can't go out there.
And say something to the American people that on its face simply isn't credible.
And people looked at that and said you've got to be kidding me you're telling me that you're gonna cut out tours of the White House and you're gonna delay air traffic all over the country.
But you can still fly around on Air Force One and -- -- campaign trips and you can -- out these transfer.
Studies have things that don't make any sense to -- an American citizen so I think this one rose up and bit the White House in the backside in a big way.
And they had no choice but to stop the political bleeding in it's an interesting thing.
That the it.
Example the Jay Carney used at the White House was -- to van -- -- I've cut myself making salads but a band -- stops the blood from getting into the Salomon ruining downer.
So you know band aids sometimes are not a bad thing and -- this is a band aid could put it on the cut.
Police won't -- in the salad.

It you you you can't sell it that way fear after the fact.
He just -- well and the Agriculture Department came back this very week Tom Vilsack said all the meat inspectors are OK we've been able to preserve them.
Look -- the political consequences.
Of up and -- -- they preserve them.
Because that's out of their editors to know that and they knew that people just weren't buying it that that was the only way they could somehow -- with sequestration.
-- -- -- I'm afraid you know you make -- an egg salad but we need you now that's a -- doing that on his very fine show Huckabee eight and we got coming up.
Well we're gonna have but Chris crane the ice and union president who is part of an effort to suit Janet -- Thomas kind of unusual about a union officials suing.
