I don't think that the detractors, those who don't want to give Amtrak any money, understand what the implications might be. The thought that we could have in the millions, tens of millions, of people looking for a way to get to work, get off crowded highways, and have some reliability established in their lives. Trains have helped move America forward since the 19th century, when we built the Transcontinental Railroad. It was an engineering marvel that captured imaginations throughout the world. As President Obama pointed out in his address to Congress last week, building a world-class transportation system helped make America an economic superpower. That's why I support his call for more investment in America's railways.
