Your Congress loves you, and it will do anything to make you happy.
That’s why they’ve introduced H.R. 4077, The First Bag Flies Free Act. The bill would require airlines to transport your first piece of luggage for free.
We all know that airlines have been struggling to make money lately, and one model they’ve stumbled upon is to charge extra dollars for lots of little things—like, in some cases, transporting your luggage.
A lot of people don’t like that. Hence, this bill. But is it really Congress’ job to do what you’re supposed to be doing? Hey—if you don’t like paying to ship your luggage, why not call the airlines rather than (literally) making a federal case out of it. Toughen up, kiddo!
Or, sit back and let Congress take care of everything. They do love you, and they so so want you to be happy.
