In keeping with their policy of trying to destroy the economy, the Obama monarchy is now going to sue to stop the merger of American Airlines and US Airways.  They claim they are suing because the merged company would lead to higher prices and less competition.  But the truth is American Airlines is bankrupt and US Airways is not able to compete with Delta and United.

The merged airlines would save money and the jobs of its pilots and crews.  The unions are backing the merger and call Obama’s suit against it to be anti-worker.  Without the merger, American Airlines will disappear entirely and US Airways could follow within just a few years, but combined, they could compete on equal footing with the bigger airlines and actually increase competition.

On the surface, it appears to be nothing more than an attempt to exert government control in an industry that has been hurting for years.  The airlines want it.  The workers want it.  Even the unions want it.  Only the Obama administration is against it, making the false argument that it would lead to less service and higher prices.  You really have to wonder what geniuses within the Obama monarchy thought this up.

The failure of American Airlines and the inability of US Airways to compete, would mean that Delta and United would have things pretty much to themselves and there would be no need to cut prices.  And as far as less destinations, that should be decided in the marketplace.  If there is not enough traffic to make a route profitable, it should be ended.  That’s the principle behind supply and demand.  If there is no demand, why should we create artificial supply with others footing the tab?   After all, why should someone flying to Dallas have to subsidize someone flying to Muskrat Grove, Minnesota?

From this day forward, I will refer to Holder as Sue.
