No new taxes

United States

#1 Jun 4, 2009
High speed rail has been considered in the U.S. for decades. The killer has always been the costs involved and last time I checked the U.S. was flat broke and trillions of dollars in debt. England has a rail system that was supposed to cure all their ills. The reality has been that England wasted billions of dollars and the system was worn out well before it was expected to be and there is no money to pay for repairs.
Everything that obama proposes is wasteful, expensive, unaffordable, and will lead to massive new taxes on the middle class.
