Congress should abolish the TSA -- it's time to privatize airport screening

By Chris Edwards

A government study that finds a program doesn’t work and proposes to cut it is almost as rare as pigs that fly. But a new Government Accountability Office study on aviation does just that: it proposes chopping the Transportation Security Administration’s SPOT security program because it finds no evidence that it could stop airline terrorists.

The GAO routinely finds waste in programs, but it usually just proposes ways to fix them -- so the Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques program must be really lame. The GAO finds no “scientifically validated evidence” for the $200 million program, and it says that TSA deployed it before even doing a cost-benefit analysis.

That failure is one of many discussed in my new study on TSA, which proposes dismantling the agency.

That will just mean TSA checkpoints on a highway/interstate near you faster than they planned on doing it or maybe this was the plan all along.  They won't abolish shit; you'll just have to deal with them now every freaking time you take a road trip.

The pay for TSA is only a few dollars more than what McDs or Walmart workers make.  Which explains the high rate of theft that is reported.
