Our Infrastructure Is Falling Apart -The Railroads
(POPEYE) I walked a 1/4 mile of train track in central Florida recently, and found that the tracks in many spots are not connected properly to the railroad ties, and some not at all. And these tracks run past houses. The tracks date back to the 1940’s. Perhaps our infrastructure should be a bigger priority than who we are going to bomb next, or what new weapon we can build. The railroads get government subsidies and tax concessions out the ying yang. So does Amtrak which uses CSX lines to transport people. So whether or not the lines are privately owned, our tax dollars fund it to a degree one way or another. And if we are going to spend money on something, our infrastructure is a good place to start.
