Amtrak Gets Government Handout

Amtrak just got handed a whole barrel of pork.

Amtrak has never been profitable. Not once in its existence has it taken in enough ticket fare to offset its expenses, yet time and again politicians tell us that a national rail service is “neccessary” for our contry’s continued economic health and growth.

I’m why such a vital rail system can’t turn a profit in a nation of citizens that doesn’t mind shelling out four or five dollars for one cup of coffee.
