    Federal dollars come from taxpayers and with the US bankrupt- rmsmith

    the US isn't bankrupt. Not even close.

    In public debt relatively to GDP we're not even in the top 25 nations for debt.

    Why did the money for the repair work not come from RDU Airport Authority. Based upon what they charge to park a car, they should have sufficient funds.

    Federal dollars come from taxpayers and with the US bankrupt, this is wasteful spending. Plus why should taxpayers have to pay for this !!!!!! Wreckless spending by a democrat

    Kay, where were you for the last three years? Now all of a sudden... you're in the news almost every day. You must think we are all a bunch of simpletons. We know what you've been doing the last three years and it's time for you to go.
