The sequester had visible and painful effects on the FAA, resulting in flight delays and an outcry from travelers and airlines. So Congress acted quickly to allow flexibility to the FAA to set its own budget priorities and to keep air traffic controllers on the job.

What can be done to create a sense of urgency to get this fixed?
