Politicians want vaping banned on airlines who already ban it

Politicians really make my head hurt with just how clueless and out of touch they with the American public. Recently seven US Senators, all Dems for those of you that care, called on the Department of Transportation to ban vaping and e-cigs on all US commercial flights. The thing is that all commercial carriers in the US already ban vaping and e-cigs on their flights without government interference.

Why do we need a government ban if there is a private ban already in place? Your tax dollars at work people.

Here’s a list of the Malfeasant Seven…

Signing on to the letter were Barbara Boxer of California, Dick Durbin of Illinois, Tom Harkin of Iowa, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Jack Reed of Rhode Island and Edward Markey of Massachusetts.

I’m not surprised to see Blumenthal on there but where is Senator Jeff Merkley? This is right up his alley. Maybe he’s too busy working on a ban of anything that has a flavor from being carried on a plane.
