The Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA), together with the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) have both issued a public letter to the US Government asking to end the current shutdown.

Obviously time to privatize both services as has been discussed here during the last shutdown over Obamacare. Passengers pay for the TSA to grope them and these funds can be transferred to the individual airports (some are privatized now). This will get rid of the union featherbedding and give local control and supervision to reasonable standards.

As far as ATC goes this should have been privatized ages ago taking it out of politics. This has worked just fine in Canada (remember how well Gander and Moncton handled the crisis on 9/11 with absolutely no notice). The essential service and funding requirements can be built into the legislation avoiding any shutdown as politicians beat their chests.
