RAISE TAXES !!!!!!!!!

Obama has suggested that the supercommittee of lawmakers tasked with cutting a minimum of $1.2 trillion from the federal deficit consider an increase in the per-takeoff fee on flights that could run as high as $100.

The ATA said that “further increasing airline taxes and fees would eliminate 181,000 American jobs, reduce air service and mean higher costs.

I guess it’s rhetorical to ask if these guys ever think anything through, but do they??
