Yeah, it really costs more than $10 roundtrip to make sure I didn't leave a butter knife in my carry on.

I agree that security is important, but this closing the barn door after the animals escaped, and typical bureaucratic inefficiency is ridiculous.

I hope Southwest pitches a fit about this, along with all the other airlines.

Good luck guys, you need it

Seriously, does anyone REALLY believe that this tax would go towards airport security?

Taxes go into the general fund, and someone will find a way to re-direct this money towards their own pork project. It's been proven time and time again.

And once a tax is started, it NEVER goes away. Look at your phone bill sometime - taxes begun in the 1930's are still around.
