Trillion dollar deficits... Iran on its way to nuclear weapons... unemployment at close to 10%, with 'underemployment' nearing 20%... and Democratic Senator Charles Schumer thinks a good use of his time is to pressure Spirit Airlines to drop their plan to charge passengers for their carry on baggage?

It may be a stupid business decision... but nobody is forced to buy a ticket on any airline that charges a fee for carry on bags.

And this illustrates the extreme arrogance of our elected officials. They think NOTHING is off limits to their power. If they don't like something, by definition, it becomes the basis for passing a law (or in this case, pressuring the Transportation Department) to outlaw whatever it is that they don't like.
