Mr. MICA - "... As I said, Amtrak now chugs along at 83 miles an hour. It's almost embarrassing to call that high-speed rail. That's Acela"
Mr. SHAYS - "...It is a mystery to me how Amtrak could have built a high speed, a faster train that doesn't work properly. The Acela can't be used for what it was intended to be used for. It doesn't go faster because it can't tilt. It's three inches too wide."
Mr. SHAYS - "And people must realize we subsidize right now Amtrak to the tune of every single ticket sold to the tune of $50.12"
"More money for Amtrak makes sense."
[ House of Representatives - July 22, 2008 ]
Maybe they can get it up to 85 MPH and $100.00 per ticket taxpayer subsidy - Go Amtrak!!!
