Oliver McGee, former deputy assistant secretary of transportation, said Saturday on Fox & Friends that the lawsuit is a bad move.
“The government always pays its bills,” he said, “and they will furlough after this government-shutdown drama is over.”
He said that it’s still safe to fly, even though controllers won’t be getting paid.
“These folks are very dedicated to their jobs,” he said. “So are the TSA security officers. … This drama will end and more importantly, the courts will back the president on this because of the Taft-Hartley Act and that the government will be paying its bills.”
The Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 prohibits unions from going on certain strikes and boycotts.
