house Bill H.R. 5065

Does TSA Need to Follow its Screening Process for Parents Traveling With Baby Formula or Breast Milk?

Argument in favor

The TSA already has a process in place for allowing parents to bring baby formula, breast milk, and juice onto planes for their infants — it just needs to train security personnel about it.

I think people are reading this wrong, as I did at first. Apparently the TSA already has procedures in place on how to deal with breast milk, formula and juice, it just seems the TSA agents don't know about those procedures yet? Damn it's sad that this has to be put into a bill, but yes, I think we should tell TSA agents about their own policies...man I really hope I'm still reading this wrong.

TSA needs to create better procedures that can be instilled in their employees and make air travel more efficient for the consumers.

It seems like there's already guidelines in place, better just make sure people follow them.

Argument opposed

There have already been steps taken by the TSA to get security personnel to better deal with parents who are traveling with infants and liquids for feeding them. This bill’s not needed.

Get rid of the TSA and have airports do their own private security. There is overwhelming evidence that private security is cheaper and does a more efficient job, plus people who don't ever fly aren't flippin the bill for those who do fly.

The TSA needs to be abolished. Any agency with a 95% failure rate is a waste of taxpayer money.

The TSA's screening barely counts as security in the first place, this won't prevent a single thing

    TSA is already a violation of our rights. We don't need more infringement on our rights.

    If this isn't being done already, then the whole TSA needs to be flushed down the toilet! I have yet to read anything that justifies their existence! They are guilty (like Hillary Clinton) of GROSS NEGLIGENCE and willful misconduct! There is an obvious sickness pervading our government (and our society in general). The stench of corruption and inefficiency is unbelievably, but unmistakably foul. This whole nation (undoubtedly with exceptions) is in SERIOUS TROUBLE! There is a lack of solidarity, trust, and hope. The people have lost their national identity, pride, and sovereignty. Most, it would seem, no longer care about the true history of this nation and the principles that formed its foundation. George Washington is credited with saying, "You cannot rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible." Truer words have never been spoken by an American!! God-fearing people are MORAL people! Godly people serve their fellow Americans to the best of their ability, not to please men, but to please God Almighty and to glorify Him! The U.S. Constitution has been willfully misinterpreted by the atheists, humanists, Communists and other enemies of Christ in this nation with regard to the so-called "separation of church and state" clause. The framers of the Constitution realized that there was doctrinal disunity among the people who called themselves Christians. It was their aim to prevent the federal government from elevating one particular church to the status of national church and thereby denying other churches the same freedom to practice their religion as their beliefs dictated. The goal was to protect freedom of religion, NOT freedom FROM religion. By removing God and the Bible from our government and our schools, you created a VOID, which evil people have been willing and able to fill. People, without reverence for God, are selfish and willful at worst and foolish and shortsighted at best. Put any two people together and they will find something to disagree on and perhaps fight about! But people who acknowledge their Creator as the final Authority in all matters will act with wisdom and justice and love for their fellow citizens! That's precisely why God gave us the Bible! To guide us in all things! To give us WISDOM! To save us, in essence, from our baser inclinations! And THAT is what we DESPERATELY need in all of our government branches and agencies, at the federal, state AND local levels!

    Either abolish the TSA and create a more appropriate approach to airplane and airport security, or do a complete rework. Current regulations and rules are merely feel good rules that are proven to not provide good security (see internal TSA studies).

    Not only is this ridiculous, so is the TSA. How many of their own have they missed? NSA can't vet refugees! Barry lets nearly 1000 illegals become legal by "mistake." No breast milk testing, no more TSA.

    Instead of passing another bill to insure the prior bill is fulfilled, why not fire those agent who cannot be taught and hire others who can. Another option would be to fire the trainers who failed to train or the upper management who didn't see the training was done. Just keep in mind that dumping more money into a failed organization will not guarantee success.

    So let me get this straight: It takes an act of Congress, literally, to get the TSA to train their people on EXISTING procedures? There isn't any other order of business that needs to be taken care of? If this is truly necessary, then the TSA needs to be completely reorganized.

    The TSA doesn't actually help. No need to make them even more intrusive.
