New Advances in Amtrak?

By Landon

Deep in the pages of President Bush's 2009, 3.1 trillion dollar budget lies a 40 percent cut in funding for Amtrak. He plans to only fund it with 800 million dollars of the money he is allowed. This cut is so deep that it could slow the quasi-government interstate passenger rail service to a halt. Many people can't afford this. The next president following in Bush's steps must not allow this to happen and provide more funding for this train service. A question comes from a previous article. Where is all of this money going? With all of this money going to who knows where, our economy will also slow to a stop. Somebody better step up and take control of the country!
