(CNSNews.com) – Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) yesterday accused Republicans in Congress of having a “petty agenda” and wanting "an attack on working men and women" over funding for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
“Here we are – another made up crisis by the Republicans – that’s what this is. Why do I say that? Because 20 times we’ve passed clean extension of FAA. We keep the contentious issues for the regular process,” said Boxer, a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee on Wednesday at the Capitol.
Boxer was joined by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.) to call on the GOP-led House to pass a short-term extension of funding for the FAA with no cuts.
