Did you hear what Sen. Chuck Schumer wants to do? Introduce legislation that would prevent airlines to charge for carry-on luggage (i.e. Spirit). What?! Where does it say in the Constitution that any branch of government should be interfering in the private airline business?
I was watching Fox & Friends yesterday, and heard Steve Doocy (the cool anchor from Kansas) talking to good ol' Chuck Schumer about this. Apparently Senator Schumer is under the impression that it is a right for us to be able to fly at some randomly determined standard I guess. Sure, I like to fly, and I like to fly for a good price. However, the market should be determining that price, not the government! The companies need to determine what they can afford and what their customers are willing to pay.
Each company can and should choose their own price structure, and then they have to determine if the market will respond accordingly. Really, I just can't believe that the government even for a nanosecond thought this should be their business. Seriously, where will it stop?!
Just this gal's opinion on our nanny-state inducing government
