There is a new tax with the money earmarked for the TSA. The insiders in Washington say, “nothing succeeds like failure.” More money for the TSA is the epitome of that truism. Professor Reynolds and I are in complete agreement:
Glenn Reynolds, a University of Tennessee law professor and TSA critic who blogs at Instapundit.com, slammed the fee as good money after bad — the TSA has been widely criticized for incompetence and abusive searches.
“I’m not against user fees,” Reynolds said. “But this is not a user fee. This is a fee for being used. I don’t think the TSA does any good at all. Every dollar that goes to them is a waste. More dollars is more waste. I think the TSA should be abolished.”
Couldn’t agree more.
