Re: Trump's budget slashes Amtrak funding, phases out long-distance routes

Posted by Jackson Park B Train on Thu Feb 13 15:50:19 2020, in response to Trump's budget slashes Amtrak funding, phases out long-distance routes, posted by https://salaamallah.com/ on Thu Feb 13 15:39:00 2020.

much better to phase out the orange liar. Had the GOP not rammed through the tax giveaway which is now accelerating the deficit, there would be plenty of federal revenue available to upgrade/improve transit, intercity rail etc. We allknow that the Hudson and Baltimore tunnels are in dire need of replacement/general overhaul. And let us not forget the massive waste at the five sided money pit in northern VA. Half a dozen of the totally unnecessary F35s would pay for both the Hudsonand Baltimore tunnels. Money pi$$ed away on more nukes (we still have enough to obliterate all mankind 3-4 times) would easily pay for a couple of useful HSR projects--LA--LV, Milw--Stl, CLE-PGH as examples.

This budget is like a family, having given away all of their savings/IRAs etc, now wants 3 new yachts, two ski resort condo's while the actual house needs a new roof, upgraded electrical, HVAC, not to mention weatherizing and solar.
