New fees in airlines, user fees for owners..when does it stop????

Obama's 2013 budget plan includes higher air passenger fees
The 2013 budget plan proposed by the Obama administration calls for a rise in passenger security fees at airlines, with a goal of collecting as much as $25.5 billion in additional passenger fees over the next 10 years. Airlines have expressed disapproval at the proposed fee increase, citing possible job cuts. The budget request also proposes a bill that would boost transportation spending to $476 billion over six years as well as a $1 billion budget for hardware upgrades at the Federal Aviation Administration.
