TSA Getting Favorable Ratings With Americans
The Transportation Security Administration is getting approval from the American people for a job well done. Over 54% of the people polled by Gallup, says that the TSA is doing an excellent or very good job in the way they handle screening responsibilities at airports in the United States.
Only 30% claimed that the agency was doing just a fair job with their security. There are still some people who obviously consider the TSA’s role as intrusive and not that important, but it is changing the minds of many travelers who appreciate the job they do and their commitment to everyone’s safety.
The only ones who seem to be complaining about the agency are republicans in Congress. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky wants to privatize the agency, which is the GOP’s answer to every government venture. Rep. John Mica of Florida, who is the Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, continues to be the leading critic against the TSA. He also wants it privatized and continues to exalt his authority even though he has no jurisdiction. The TSA was transferred into the Department of Homeland Security after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, along with a lot of other agencies.
The popularity of TSA is many times higher than Congress, which has crept up to 16% recently. The GOP needs to leave agencies alone if they are doing a good job and the people support their efforts. Safety in American airports cannot be compromised. A few minutes of inconvenience is worth having to ensure that the skies will stay friendly.
