Joe Biden Boasts Plan to Take Millions of Vehicles off Highways by Putting People on Trains

Breitbart – by Charlie Spiering

President Joe Biden revisited his love of trains during a trip to his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, promising to get millions of vehicles off the roads.

“We will take literally millions of automobiles off the road,” Biden boasted, arguing that more high-speed trains like the ones constructed in China would make trains more attractive.

If more people took trains, Biden argued, it would save millions of barrels of oil and reduce pollution.

“This is not hyperbole; this is a fact,” he insisted. “These are facts.”

Biden boasted $66 billion in government spending to subsidize trains in his infrastructure bill.

“I got more money for passenger rail than the entire Amtrak system cost to begin with,” he said. “We’re going to change the nation in a big way.”

Amtrak continues to enjoy heavy subsidies from Congress even though it has famously lost money for 50 years. Since 1971, Amtrak has cost taxpayers more than $100 billion.

But Biden’s proposed plan sparked Amtrak to share a dream list of even more connected cities across the country by 2035.

In Scranton, Biden spoke at length about his long history of riding Amtrak, boasting he rode the train more than two million miles while he was senator and vice president.

“You should name half the line after me,” Biden said. “I am the most railroad guy you’re ever going to meet.”

  1. Well it’s been working so well for Commiefornia. They can’t even get trucks on the road to transport the containers from the ports and high speed trains aren’t designed for shipping, so good luck!

  2. And, of course, you need the “vaccines” to ride the rail…. so where do these “trains” wind up? Internment camps?…. Right, if you’re not “vaxxed”…. Good luck putting these “trains” on 100 year old tracks in far west Texas…oh, and don’t go too fast, since most of these 100 year old tracks have 50 year old freight trains stuck on them…. Seriously….

  3. So slow joe
