    Just another disgusting example of our tax payer dollars hard at work! This might even be as offensive as proposed FAA user fees.

    I just cannot believe that something as ludicrous as this would even be considered. Pretty soon, we will be charged for even walking into the airport – much less having the audacity to fly!

    I for one think this is a waste and if the TSA thinks that I would pay this extra tax for any carry on bags,they can forget it. You want the extra money,take it out of your own Damn pockets

    TSA should make the airlines (through the IRS) to pass for the extra expenses of screening carry-on bags….or TSA could leverage a fee from the airlines equivalent to all their checked bag fees…

    To be fair, they aren’t really looking to take cash on a per-bag basis at the WTMD or something. They just want to charge everyone more because of the costs that Nappy associates with the carry-ons. Still a pretty stupid plan overall and one that doesn’t really account for the bigger picture. Not really all that hard to see just how many ways she’s wrong, but such is life. The more I see and hear about how our government operates the more I want to revolt.

    Don’t forget that you are already paying part of the TSA’s costs every time you fly in the form of the “9/11 Security Fee” of $2.50/segment, up to $5 each way on a trip. That’s the fee she’s trying to get raised.

    Just once I would love to see some ROI numbers on the TSA and their policies.
