It certainly is embarrassing that an FAA bill hasn’t gotten through Congress in four years. But guess who has had control over Congress during that time? Let’s see…in 2006, Democrats won the mid-term elections and had complete control over Congress until…2010. It is now 2011. Democrats had total control during those four years, and Sen.
