If it's wasn't April 1st, I'd be writing a letter to the White House. Since it is April 1st, I'll wait and see what the morning brings

"They're expensive toys often operated by the top 1% of wage earners," Carney said. "We think they should be asked to pay a modest fee for their use of the National Air Space like we've proposed for most other flights."

Carney stepped down in May of 2014.
