Government’s role in the rail system

Susie over at Suburban Guerilla thinks that this is a good example of the government underfunding Amtrak and took advantage of a captive audience in Philadelphia to evangelize a change in control in November.

Yes, President Bush tried to zero out government subsidies for Amtrak last year. At the time, I blogged about Senator Obama’s support for not only maintaining government support but actually upgrading our rail lines; as one who loves train travel for both business and pleasure, I would hope that we take this opportunity to have a serious dialog about the quality of rail travel and the role government can play in ensuring its survival…

Meanwhile, we still haven’t moved.
