Gephart knows best. Dick Gephart

Gephart knows best. Dick Gephart thinks that airlines “need help” downsizing. This is so ripe for jokes (government downsizing?) but it just isn’t funny.

It’s hard to imagine government picking which airlines should fly, how often they should fly, to where, what they should charge.. oh, actually it isn’t hard to imagine at all. That’s how the system worked prior to 1978. Since deregulation, real prices have fallen more than 20% and consumers save nearly $20 billion/year.
