Today’s tax cuts, tomorrow’s pain

Elaine Thompson/Associated Press

The May 2 editorial “Apply FAA ‘fix’ to others” rightly takes Congress to task for responding only to angry airlines and cranky business travelers. However, it should be noted that the restoration of funds for air traffic controllers came at the expense of weather observers and airport improvement funds. Robbing Peter to pay Paul is not going to help air traffic now or in the future and may endanger us just as much as too few air traffic controllers.

We may love our tax cuts today, but continuing to disinvest in America’s future, including Head Start, Meals on Wheels, infrastructure spending, medical research, could cost us much more later on.
