TSA Cutbacks Cause Delays At MIA
WBFS ^

Posted on 03/18/2013 8:47:13 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Travelers at Miami International Airport weren’t too happy this weekend after being caught in delays for hours due to cutbacks by the Transportation Security Adminstration.

Passengers said they faced major frustration as they stood in long lines, desperate to get through customs.

“Which is ridiculous for people to suffer like this,” said Sal Tricamo, a passenger who missed his flight...

Of course, within a day or two, it will be the fault of the Republicans.

Obama and his media had to wait, as the Pope was getting all of the attention last week.....but NOW it will be 24/7 “evil Republicans” and “hero Obama in Israel”.

Florida news ping!

The media which lied and fabricated things to get the marxist elected are continuing to lie and fabricate to protect their favorite stalinist.

Eliminate TSA altogether. Thieves, sex offenders, and union thugs. What a worthless endeavor.

Even with them “on the job” it was passengers who had to defend their plane from a hijacker over Detroit at Christmas time.

How many terrorist attacks have been thwarted by TSA agents? Can anyone name specific individuals (terrorists convicted or the heroic agents)?

The news media are democrat/socialist propagandists posing as reporters, cherry picking events that advance their leftist agenda to make them news

The media is the main problem we have . then government is the problem . but if it weren’t for the media then people would know government is the problem not the solution as the media paints it to be

agree, the GOP and RNC talk about getting the message out and finding out they;re stuffy and old and yet were supposed to be for the rich and then they spend millions on this when all tey had ot do was to look at the media and how they are all Dems who spout the left wing lies.

Dems get most support form the rich is it that hard to mention that for the GOP.
Fces sex is up to the homosexuals but to say they are married because of this is insane , even studies find children are better with a mother and a father and the GOP can;t even mention this or any social issue.

Take the media on, call them out on their shows, tell them they;re biased on live camera, force them to cover stories and call them out for not doing so.

Want common sense and not a bunch of left over druggie hippies and elitist beltway types then take this media out, hand out bumper stickers, make AD’s showing their lies.

The elitist beltway types do a survey , spend millions to find out what we already know and then they don;t accept that they are part of the problem in the party.

Maybe they shoudl stop attacking the base and forcing RINO’s like Romney, christie on to us, stop attacking the likes of Sarah because she woudl clear thing ups and never went to an ivy league school, then they attack Col West, Newt

Let me guess, at least half the “officers” working were standing around doing nothing.

I flew out of Baltimore on Saturday morning at 6:00. Two things were obvious.

If you we’re in the trusted traveler program there was no wait, even so many extra agents they were waiting for passengers to have someone besides their coworkers to chat with.

If you went through normal screening the line was about 3 hours in length and caused many to miss their flights. The flight I was on delayed for almost 30 minutes so passengers wouldn’t be left behind. Even with the delay a sold out flight on a 737 still had about 30 seats empty.

There was no shortage of screeners, they just hid them away from sight and pretended to not have money for them. Despicable, but expected.

I was lucky to be a trusted traveler, my wife flew out of Kansas City this morning for an 8:30am flight and had over an hour line, but this was apparently due to spring break not a slow down or hidden screeners. Kansas City uses private screeners that are tightly controlled by the TSA to keep them miserable.

I was in North Carolina over the weekend, and the local media there were going on about all the closures of facilities on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Blamed of course on a small reduction in the rate on spending INCREASE.

MIA is bad enough under normal conditions, I can only imagine how bad it must have been.

My daughter just had a college friend come up from Florida on Saturday. He didn't have any problems.

I think they're making stuff up. Never trust the liberal media.

Somebody needs to remind the public that the TSA very recently spent millions on new uniforms, and that 0dungo and the Congress were able to find billions of dollars to pay for advanced weapons systems, including fighter jets. for the Moslem Broltherhood in Egypt and Syria.

We already know the Media won’t do it, so it’s up to us.

I didn’t think the sequester did any cutting to the TSA. It simply couldn’t do anymore hiring. Bogus is as bogus does.

Soon, we will hear sob stories of people who missed weddings, funerals, surgeries, and birthday parties because of eeeeevil Republican budget sequesters.

The fake Miami news clowns will NOT report the truth: the sequester was Obama’s idea and he signed it into law.

The RNC should be handing out flyers at those lines.

As an airport worker, let me say TSA needs/MUST be cut back. It is nothing but a Government jobs-for-life program now. TSA was a horrible, disastrous idea from Day One.

They are “Cutting” at the security lines, where it is the most visible, yet NO ONE is being actually let go.

There are two separate problems here. One is TSA and the other is Customs. Customs money problems started a couple years ago because they upped the journeyman grade to GS-12 for their line officers without ever getting it put into a line item on the non-existent federal budget. To pay for that and a similar increase at Border Patrol they have been stealing money from anywhere they can to pay for it. Now that has run dry so they are cutting overtime, in addition to the furloughs which don't kick in until next month.

I think the bigger question is if this is a work action by union employees. It is pretty easy to slow down the lines. Add two "slow" lines together and you end up with a bunch of passengers missing their planes.

Unreal......I flew to DC last week and returned on Saturday to Mobile and I was through security very quickly both directions. So somebody down there is lying or the airport management is in zer0’s back pocket and is intentionally screwing up the process.

Don’t let them get away with it. Nail Obama with this. It was his choice what to shut down. He didn’t have to make life miserable for Americans.

If he’d just cut waste you wouldn’t even have noticed, but then the lie of big government needing every penny would be well known.

Stories like this should be an obvious winning cause/issue for the Republicans.

This is why most presidents, including the old democrats who, at least, cared for the Constitution, were against the unionization of government employees. Who ever gives them the freebies now gets their loyalties.
This crap happened during the last debt ceiling debate. Government union workers at the DMV (and probably most other places) simply hid out in back rooms, and those at the counter did paperwork - they did cross word puzzles. People had to wait forever to be waited on, because the democrats wanted more money to buy votes. The government union slowed way down to assist them in getting the cash.

The airport hold-ups are a result of the federal budget sequester that went in affect March 1st


Obama is laughing as he makes life miserable for the peasants.

I flew out of Tampa Airport on March 1 and I observed the TSA inspectors “following the letter of the law to the last detail”. All designed to make life miserable for daring to oppose Obama.

I see this backfiring on Obama.
