Tired Of Presidential TFRs? Send Them The Bill...

If You Can't Fight City Hall (Or The White House), Bill Them

He probably won't get paid, but you have to admire the invoice. 

Jim Gray has submitted a bill to the White House and the Democratic National Committee in the amount of $2565 dollars, representing the business which has been lost at his Oakland Flyers flight school during a campaign fund-raising visit by President Obama.
The visit Thursday night brought a TFR to the Bay area of California from 1700 till 1000 Friday, which meant Gray's fleet sat parked, students had to have their lessons cancelled, and both the flight school and the instructors lost money.
Gray comments, "If it was for something related to global affairs, I'd have no problem with it. But if it's just for fundraising, kind of do it on somebody else's dime."

He shared his letter on ABC-7 TV. It says, in part, "In keeping with the spirit of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, we feel that this loss of revenue should not go unmitigated. We appreciate your timely acknowledgement and payment."
