    • Defund Amtrak. It is a waste. This is not Europe. Let he northeast corridor states and calif pay for it if they want it. The rest of us don't wish to subsidize their use of public transportation.

      • hey cupcake,

        You got it backwards. The only place where passenger rail is profitable is in California, New York, and very few other places.

        California pays to subsidize Amtrak through Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alaska Minnesota, Wisconson, Michigan, Montana, and Texas.

        If Amtrak dumped all routes except New York and California, in 10 years they would be one of the richest companies in the world.
