They keep saying "Cut Backs" I have yet to see any cut backs. All we seem to get is words that haven't meant anything. When was the last time a scheduled commercial flight landed here????

This will not "fly" in an era of cut backs.Mollohan may have saved it as # 2 man on Appropriations.WV has lost her Congressional power with Byrd and Mollohan gone.

A better plan for the tower is: a DOD project that requires a tower and would create new jobs.eg assembly

This action by McKinley just goes to demonstrate that he is not serious about getting the nations fiscal house in order.

Redundant and/or unnecessary government program cuts will be painful to the few, but in the long run are necessary to sustain the betterment of the many.

Devastating? Why isn't it self sustained? Where's the TeaPublican outcry at this outrageous waste of taxpayers dollars? Sounds like the millionaire oil/coal barons are gonna have to cough up their own $$$.

"Political decisions like this one can have a devastating effect on communities like Wheeling and Parkersburg," said McKinley.

What, in God's name, could have a devastating effect on Wheeling, David McKinley?

You and Joe Manchin will be inconvienienced but VERY FEW of the folks left in Wheeling will suffer.

Thank our lucky stars that we have a "Big Business Buddy" like you in Congress.

I can't wait for the History Books to evaluate the hard work that you and Joe put into this state.

It will be some fine reading.
