Skip to comments.Janet Napolitano: Budget feud has resulted in long airport lines (the memo has been sent)
Posted on 03/04/2013 3:04:30 PM PST by Libloather
The budget battle in Washington that is forcing cuts to federal budgets has already resulted in delays and long lines at some of the nation's largest airports, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday.
At a breakfast meeting with the news organization Politico, Napolitano said her agency is cutting overtime pay and sending out furlough notices to customs officers and airport security screeners.
As a result, she said lines have already increased 150% to 200% at airports, including Los Angeles International Airport and Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

They've been told to slow things down a bit...
Well, Janet, of course they have...because that was the administrations purpose.....you created this mess and what you said would come true, did, by your actions.
Send out a memo laying people off and you get the expected results.
Can’t fool me....
They are too stupid to be trusted.
BTW, MS KOOLAID DRINKER, WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO WITH THE 1.5 BILLION ROUNDS OF AMMO YOU’VE BOUGHT???
Caps on purpose-—I’m mad as hell!!!!!
If there are long lines then it is because of gross mismanagement from Homeland Security, not a tiny cut in the growth rate of spending.
Many of us knew instinctively Bush F-ed up when he staffed and managed the gates with Federal Employees.
So, yes, Bush’s fault.
Slow down and aggravate the proles.
“Woo hoo! You hear that guys? Boss lady says we get to grope ‘em even longer now!”
Fly only if you have to do so. Starve the beast. There won’t bve any long lines if no one shows. This janet subhuman is ignorant commie loser.
We’re paying a generous fee with our tickets for airport security. What are they spending it on now?
I’m surprised that so many people read and react with panic to her policies for spreading hysteria. Eventually, more will stop paying attention. Anyone who’s been around a spoiled brat should know what’s really going on.
Men in leadership in decades past did their best to prevent panic and hysteria—even during disasters.
It is possible that the lines are indeed shorter due to all the fear porn going on and people get afraid and cancel some discrtionary travel.
Must be a three decade long “budget feud” at the DMV then. I’ve never set foot in the place without a line and sullen, shuffling “public servants” who are in absolutely no hurry whatsoever.
WOW! Somebody arrest this guy!
The administration guarantees there will be airport check in slow-downs, even if TSA has to allow half their inspectors and gropers to work from home.
If the inspectors & gropers worked from home it could really be called the long arm of the law.
Hey Janet, ask John Kerry for some of those millions they’ve promised to Egypt!
Fox had these lies disproven by noon with on-site crews.
My husband traveled from Minneapolis/St.Paul,on Saturday ,and Atlanta today. He saw no difference.
