Congressmen and Senators have finally come to their senses and decided that this Do Nothing Congress has got to do Something. So before getting packed up for their upcoming break they rushed through a bill that would allow the FAA to move funds around so that they don't have to furlough 1500 air traffic controllers, which would result in nationwide flight cancellations and delays.
They decided that these 1500 people needed to stay on the job even in light of the sequester that Republicans all seemed to be wildly if favor of when they let it go into effect.
So now I suppose they are going to do something about all the cuts to cancer research and Headstart programs that the sequester will also bring about.
Or maybe not.
