Why Congress Really Fixed the Airport Delays

Joshua Green notes that the decision to reverse the automatic cuts that were causing air-traffic controllers to be furloughed -- delaying hundreds of flights -- wasn't about rich air travelers.

"The group that Congress is helping the most by lifting the FAA sequester isn't business flyers. No, lawmakers are helping themselves. There is no more pampered class of air traveler than members of Congress... The point is, Congress's decision to lift the sequester was even more self-serving than you probably imagined. After casting their votes on Friday, most members raced to the airport and went home."

Jon Stewart had his own hilarious take on the subject last night.
