  1. $10.8 million of taxpayer money spent to attempt to defend a dysfunctional DOT, with FAA being the lions share. The FAA’s consistent ranking at the bottom of all federal agencies in the annual employee satisfaction survey should have Congre$$ looking at all this waste. Did I say Congress? Know anyone accountable these days?
