actually rail is proven.. It has turned into an alternate form of travel.. You would be surprised how much it is used between cities like philly and NY.. its cheap and fast.. Not to mention that over 40% of all the things in your home have been on a rail car at some point.. its not a question of will it work.. its already proven to be working.. i take trains every day of my life..

I hope passanger rail in this country works, I have my doubts, but if somehow it can be pulled off that's would be great. My biggest concern would be, is it going to be taxpayer subsidized? Oh but of course it would be, it seems everything in the last 6 months or so is being subsidized. What the he!! happened to this once great country?

The biggest problem with trains in this country, is stupid drivers, who want to race the train or cross in front of them,

Obama's guy, Secretary Ray LaHood is flying over the world WHAT IS HIS CARBON FOOT PRINT??

These government officials want to chide us for our travel, TAX us for every mile WE drive, but they travel ALL OVER THE WORLD (while we, the taxpayers fund their trips-just like Pelosi -in China, Obama in Nevada, California and then Washington DC).

Obama and the White House LIE, don't believe their lies. They can not be believe.

Now Obama wants a VAT-Value Added Tax-10% on everything YOU buy to pay for his nationalized healthcare....remember Obama's promise NO TAXES on anyone making under $250,000....funny how Obama never mentions that anymore...

Here's Obama's denial on mileage tax...don't believe the liar.

States are persuing this mileage tax. Is CT next?

What the hell is going on?

The masses must be restricted in their travel,
the masses must pay more taxes,
the masses must pay for others,
the masses must pay for government officials,
the masses made a BIG MISTAKE in electing Obama.

Read this english PRAVDA story...and weep.
