This question (as it’s asked on Countable) is really worded poorly. It’s a double negative and it looks like it’s confusing people... Lawmakers should definitely not be using taxpayers’ money to fly charter or private jets! How is this not already a law? Furthermore, lawmakers should not be allowed to upgrade to first class or business class using taxpayers’ money, either. They should have to suffer in coach like the rest of us. If lawmakers have such a problem with flying commercial, maybe they should take some time to look at current airline regulations, or the lack thereof. No one likes being squished together like a pack of sardines, but the majority of us can’t afford to charter a jet whenever we want to go somewhere! So, if lawmakers don’t want to be squished, looks like they are in a perfect position to regulate the way the five major airlines in the United States operate. Maybe it’s time to stop allowing oligopolies to rule certain markets and hinder competition. Without an oligopoly in the airline market, airlines will have competitive prices (that save our tax dollars) in addition to competitive amenities and comfort levels! Then, it’s possible that lawmakers won’t have such a big problem with flying commercial anymore. And honestly, it will make their constituents content as well!!
