Anything the government has its hands in turns to schit at the expense of the taxpayer. Just take a look at Amtrak. Talk about a train wreck. That thing has square wheels. Even that horses rosette Joe Biden stopped taking it long ago.

We must embrace all the inefficient, ineffective wildly over priced Big Brother crap that the Orwelle crowd want to force us. We have no spine, backbone, or the common sense one would expect from a park bench.

We had a chance to elect quality and we didn't Man Up. Pay up Suckers!! Political ignorance such as we showed in Nov is bound to be frightfully expensive and never worth the billions borrowed to fund it.

Thank God, Obama is going to dump all the deficit Trillions on our poor kids so we don't have to worry about paying for anything.

The left's new word dictionary:

Infrastructure....(union kickbacks and choosing who gets to work)

Raising revenue.....(we gonna tax yo 'asz.)

High speed rail: Be like china...go to the station, wait an hour for your train...pay the government to ride the train, get off the train and try to find a ride to your final destination)

Instead of getting in your car and driving for 30 minutes!! LMAO

When I lived in Montana Amtrak trains going west were always 8 to 14 hours late! At one time this country had great train service but those days are gone forever.

Some of you guys and politicians might want to go to those first world countries which value passenger trains and good public transport.
