More Government Waste

Thanks to Mod-Blog reader and friend "Nick" for letting us know about "The Airport for No One". Waste, no matter which political party it is, is still waste. We, the taxpayers, are subsidizing the Johnstown, PA airport at a cost of about $100 per passenger since fewer than 30 passengers per day use the airport. On top of this, they recently received money to build a second runway when the first one is barely being used! The reason some voted against stopping funding? It singled out that one airport. While I am sure that there are other federal subsidies that need to be cut, better to cut one than none at all.
