Funding for highways and airports are A-OK, though.

    Romney is spitting into a bucket when he talks about cutting spending. All of the programs he wants cut won't do much to balance the budget except to put a lot of people out of work, degrade our quality of living to a third world style country, and just make people mad. If cutting the arts and building more NEW highways make sense to him, he better pony up the money to stop the graffiti artisits, too.

      I agree that he is ruining our economy by not wanting to return the trains. I Know the Repulicans wanted to kill them during the Bush administration and wanted to pave the country instead to help their rich friends who were involved with Oil The Sunset Limited was only suspended after Katrina, so lets get it going again. How much wider can we make our super highways?
