From the article:
“Mica, who wrote the law creating the TSA after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, contends the agency has become a bloated, inefficient bureaucracy with too many managers among its 67,000 employees.”
Well, DUH! Anybody who has half a brain can figure out this is the natural life cycle of a Federal agency.
What does that tell you about Mica? Why doesn’t he just write up a bill to dissolve the TSA as a miserable experiment gone wrong and move to privatize all the airport security. Now he just wants to try to fix it. That never works. TSA will consider the request then say no.
