sequester bullsh't
Americans including kids on school breaks can't tour our White House thanks to Soetoro AKA Obama stopping that but he's found plenty of our tax $$ to send to 1948 'Israel' and arm al-Qeada as well as arm Homeland Security with 2 billion bullets- more than our Army soldiers have!
Oh and Planned Parenthood's annual big half billion+$$ gift from Uncle Sham is never in danger

This is sad, because America needs rail service very badly. The Sequester is truly ruining our lives.

What crap...who in congress...

I bet you its the teabaggers....

NYT's:But after years of financial losses on the route for Amtrak, Pennsylvania was faced with either picking up the tab or losing it altogether by Oct. 1. Under pressure from Congress to reduce its dependence on federal subsidies, Amtrak is looking at either closing 28 short-haul routes or getting 19 states to cover the costs. Most of the states have already agreed to pick up the costs.

"That 2008 law mentioned in the article was an attempt by the Bush admin to zero out Amtrak completely."

Any thing the Feds touch turns to shirt once the greed sets in. Only 2 things can save it sell it off to one company with the rights of eminent domain to do it right and get out of the hell cities dirty sides. safe and secure and swift

When the US needs rail service they will get it because when they need it the free market system will build it. Federal funding of rail in this country is a pipe dream and tax payer rip off. We have built this country for a hundred years on a completely different premise and trying to rewrite that won't happen until rail becomes the better way to go.

If they really wanted to do it they would start by making the roads of the railroad all government owned and maintained instead of lining the pockets of a few private rail owners through government incentives.

The sequester is a wake up call that we very badly needed. We have failed to manage our government and the result today is hundreds of under funded good programs and thousands of over funded bad programs that we don't have the political will to get rid of or downsize. All our politicians want to do is create more programs and give more people a free ride.

OK Mike try this. They should add a third rail like Lionel trains and then it would be worth big money as a live verison of a model train. They can put Obumma in charge of malfunction junction.

I can drive myself here and there and even crazy too. The question is some come here and stay calling themselves Vermonters? I don't fallow that train of thought. Why being a flat lander would you want to be a Vermonter. Next time your at or with a group of Vermonters take a step back and take a good look at the group. Who the hell would want to be a "Vermonter" any way, wow what a picture of huhs? Love always to you sickos.
