If this isn't paid for by the riders, it should be scrapped, like any new, non-essential pork projects that are supposedly tied to "stimulus". We already have a subsidized rail system. When will we realize we can't afford to spend beyond our means? I balance my books at home and it's way past time my government employees had to, as well.
So far, the supposed stimulus, from where the money for this is supposed to come, has done nothing to stimulate our broken economy. Why? Because we're so far in debt and our people have such little confidence in our ability to pay it back that the economy stays stagnant. Once we start being responsible in DC about how we spend money, the economy will turn around, based on solid fiscal responsibility and control. Let's start with this dumb idea.
