In this editorial, the Wall Street Journal decries the Federal Aviation Administration's decision to furlough air traffic controllers. "Flyers directly fund two-thirds of the FAA's budget through 17 airline taxes and fees -- about 20% of the cost of a $300 domestic ticket, up from 7% in the 1970s," the editorial says. "Yet now the White House wants to make this agency that can't deliver what passengers are supposedly paying for even more dysfunctional."
