It's pretty ironic that the Republicans that Fred flies all over the world on our corporate jets have just launched a torpedo that has reversed itself and threatens to destroy the sub itself. McConnell, Boehner, and the loony Eric Cantor have effectively screwed Fred and all of his Wall Street buddies by tanking the market. Do you think that a lot of companies are going to think twice before shipping that $124.50 box (plus hefty fuel surcharge) from LA to New York? You bet they are. If there isn't some solution for our derated credit status, Express volumes are going to drop even further. Even as the extremely conservative Chamber of Commerce and top corporate execs were pleading with the above 3 morons to "do the right thing", they continued to play politics...until it was too late. Maybe those trips to the summer house in Vail will have to be with some other jet fleet. This is going to further accelerate the push over to Ground.
