Alex's Outlook

Thursday, June 26, 2003

"It is my hope that the funding authorized in this bill will allow a last-chance window of opportunity for an Amtrak turnaround," said Rep. Don Young, an Alaska Republican and chairman of the Transportation Committee.

At that, Don Young's Transportation Committee approved $6 billion for Amtrak, the for-profit federal corporation that has never, ever made money. Young is a sleazebag who also wants to hike the gasoline tax by 5 cents a gallon, which would bring in $375 billion over the next ten years. Young may be the biggest tax-and-spend Republican in the House, and the Club for Growth would do well to put him on its 2004 hit list.
