House Cuts Amtrak Funding

Timing is everything. The House of Representatives votes to cut funding for Amtrak on the heels of a deadly crash. Nice work, guys. You make America look like a bunch of clowns.

Amtrak is an antique train system used by huge numbers of people in the northeast corridor. The rest of the world has developed high-speed trains that are faster and save money. Our infrastructure crumbles at the hands of the Less Government Crowd. They continue to insist that cutting taxes for the rich is better for this country than building an infrastructure for the 21st century.
