Today the Obama administration set aside $1.3 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to repair Amtrak infrastructure, but who wants to leave the White House, go down to Union Station and make this boring announcement on the train tracks?
Oh, there's always whatsisname…
Vice President Biden, perhaps the nation’s most famous Amtrak passenger, announced today that Amtrak will receive $1.3 billion in stimulus money to expand passenger rail capacity.
At an event at Union Station this afternoon, Biden strongly defended the government subsidies that go to the nation’s rail system and said he was “tired of apologizing for help for Amtrak.”
Touchy touchy touchy! Geez, I had no idea Joe Biden had been so busy helping Amtrak and then apologizing for it.
Well, what can you do. A man has to pass the time somehow.
