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

There are many credible sources, including portion of roads the Bus would have taken that have signs stating no snow plow services for 12 hours per day, the area is so remote and little used.

REPEAT : 23 states / 46 Senators would be left with no service. They are not being asked to subsidized their interstate highways.
I am not going to do research and post URL's to disprove your stupid claims.

REPEAT: The NEC gets $750 million in federal subsidies. It does not pay for itself. That is half Amtrak's appropriation.

NOBODY takes Uber for 500 - 1,000 mile distances, which is the average distance that people ride LD trains. Greyhound is disappearing across the continent.
