Travelers around the country are seeing thousands of flight delays, many up to 2 hours, the result of furloughs the Federal Aviation Administration started earlier this week following sequestration cuts which went into effect last month. The FAA, like many other agencies, are requiring their 47,000 employees - including 13,000 air-traffic controllers – to take extra unpaid days off, one day for every two weeks in this case.
In addition to the inconvenience for travelers, per the Passenger Rights Act passed in 2011, airlines are expected to compensate them for delays and time spent on the tarmac. Airlines, as a result, are calling on the government to fix the furlough issue or, at least, give them exceptions while furloughs are in effect.
It’s one of the first obvious effects sequestration is having on the general population, but if you are expecting Washington to do anything about it, don’t hold your breath. Rather both parties are pointing fingers at each other.
Senator Pat Toomey argued the FAA could cut from less important areas. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers accused the administration of mishandling the situation.
Democrats counter Republicans could have avoided the situation and only they now have the power to abate the impact. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Congress botched the job and the FAA had no choice but to cut back in labor costs to absorb the sequestration cuts.
One thing everyone seems to agree on is that it will only get worse as we head into the summer travel season if no action is taken.
We talk to Jim Marinitti, an Air Traffic Controller at Miami International Airport and Bob King, Energy & Transportation Editor for POLITICO.
The we talk internet sales tax with Tracy Gordon, Fellow for Economic Studies at The Brookings Institution.
The political battles around sales taxes and the Internet have raged on for years. The solutions that seem the most fair to the states are the least fair to online retailers. Debates have been coming to a close, however, as we are now in the final steps of passing an Internet Sales Tax Bill that is not without problems. This has not passed yet and is not signed into law. It probably will be, so let's go ahead and talk about what this means. Read more... http://www.stevenkaylive.com/article.php?id=362
The Senate approved a long-anticipated Internet sales tax proposal on Monday, moving the legislation one step closer to enactment and paving the way for shoppers to pay sales tax on the majority of online purchases. The so-called Marketplace Fairness Act would allow the 45 states (and the District of Columbia) that currently charge sales taxes to require large online retailers to collect tax on purchases made by their residents. The law would only apply to online sellers that have sales of at least $1 million outside of states where they have physical operations, like a store or a warehouse.
Anti-tax groups seem to be losing their influence as Republican lawmakers’ constituents support legislation that would require Internet retailers to collect sales taxes.
Then, on Thursday, the White House told Congressional leaders that the nation’s intelligence agencies had determined, “with varying degrees of confidence,” that Mr. Assad’s government had used sarin, a chemical agent, on a small scale. President Obama said last summer that use of chemical weapons was a “red line” that, if crossed, could prompt the United States to intervene, but administration officials made clear that more conclusive evidence would be necessary before any action would be taken.
“We never asked, nor did we encourage, the United States to take military action in Syria,” Mr. Steinitz said at a conference in New York sponsored by The Jerusalem Post. “And we are not making any comparison or linkage with Iran, which is a completely different matter.”
Mary & Vertasha Carter appear to be like any other loving Mother & Daughter when you see them in the photo of them that is circulating around the internet to accompany their story.
Since they don't appear out of the ordinary one would have to ask why is their story circulating or rather going viral over the internet?
Well, looks can be deceiving and if you haven't run across this bizarre tale on your own or had it forwarded it to you by a friend, then allow me to tell you what it's supposed to be all about.
Mary & Vertasha Carter are both lesbians - Mother & Daughter both - but in 2014 that isn't as shocking as it would have been fifty years ago but what truly bedazzles the mind is that they are an incestuous Mother/Daughter Lesbian lover couple!
