"Vice President Joe Biden recently announced that $53 billion will be spent by the federal government over the next six years, on top of $10.5 billion already spent, to promote construction of a national high-speed, intercity passenger rail network. The president said in his State of the Union address that he wants to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail within 25 years. This, apparently is the Obama administration’s answer to cutting federal spending -- Amtrak on steroids." (02/10/11)
