Ah.... Do as govt does... Disallow competition. Have Amtrak make money by using govt to disincentive highway travel.
Highways are here. Most, already built. The rail lines are built. But, the Amtrak service is a bust, while taxes on fuel cover the roads.
His article is limited by space constraints. He has touched on govt subsidizing highways,before.
Fact is, Amtrak is a loser because govt runs it. Fact is, the high speed rail is a boondoggle because govt is heading it up.
These idiots have the 'if you build it, they will come' nonsense in their heads.
Just look at Jobing arena for a NHL team. FAIL!!! Amtrak-FAIL!!! USPS-FAIL!!! SOLYNDRA- FAIL!!! Etc.,...etc.,....etc.,....ec.,...etc.,....etc.,.etc.,......etc.,...
