Joe Biden and Barak Obama, along with all the liberal lips stuck to both their asses, have been pushing high speed rail for several years now. China has been building high speed rail for that same time frame. Its not working out so good for the Chinese.
Thirty five dead and 191 hospitalized. The trains have had numerous problems, and they are losing money. But we should get some here. Biden and company are fools.
There is no place in America where high speed rail is necessary. If we develop rail lines, we will then have to develop a market for them. How many people are going to ride from LA to Vegas every day? Not many. And how many want to get to Vegas and be stuck on foot? Even less. This is a dumb idea.
