I'm opposed to this action of turning down federal funding for high speed rail. With both the congestion and security requirements from airports and the environmental effects of more cars on the roads, America needs an alternative to both of these regional travels options. Plus, we would help reduce our dependency on foreign oil. The infrastructure would be built. The benefits would not only help this generation but many to come. We are far behind the rest of the civilized world in high speed rail. Why can't it happen here?
