High-Speed Rail to Nowhere

The money train never stops! Here’s the story from the WSJ:

Vice President Joe Biden unveiled a $53 billion plan Tuesday to upgrade and build intercity passenger-rail networks.

Mr. Biden, along with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, announced the plan at Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station. The six-year program is designed to give 80% of Americans access to passenger-rail service within 25 years—a goal President Barack Obama set in his State of the Union Address—and to create jobs.

Maybe it’s indicative of the chances of getting the GOP Congress to approve any of this nonsense that Biden made the announcement, but I still say: “We don’t have any money left. Cut it out.”
