In an April 27 article in The Herald-Standard entitled "Obama: Flight delay fix a Band-Aid," Rep. Bill Shuster stated, "There are some in the Obama administration who thought inflicting pain on the public would give the president more leverage to avoid making necessary spending cuts and to impose more tax hikes on the American people."
This was in connection with the furloughs of the air traffic controllers imposed by the sequester.
Shuster is always up for more spending cuts that will shrink the economy, and put more people out of work, while placing more wealth in the pockets of folks whose pockets are already stuffed. His friends, the rich, now pay less taxes than they have paid since the Great Depression. Their share of taxes has gone from an all-time high of 94 percent down to an all-time low of about 35 percent.
It's time to vote Shuster out.
