Typical mopic legislature. Rail is mass transit. All else stops at red lights.
So true, David and it's always been that way. Indianapolis is too liberal, has too many blacks, latinos, gays and whatever so it scares the hell out of these good, bible toting Christians who can't see beyond their noses that God's children come in many varieties.
There was a movie years ago that said it all. Two guys on a trip stopped and got out of the car and said to his buddy something to the effect of breath that air, see those tilled fields, see the salt of the earth etc. and the other one said "Yeah, morons"!
Firstly, Megabus pays the same through fuel taxes as everyone else does. Indiana actually funds roads with a majority funds from sources than the gas tax and fees. Only 28% of the cost of building and maintaining Indiana roads comes from the gas tax and fees.
Secondly, in 1941, the "James Whitcomb Riley" made the trip in 3 hours 3 minutes. With track upgrading to 110 mph and returning the train to its original route through Lebanon and Kankakee it would be a lot more attractive.
Finally, the choice is up to Indiana. Illinois is upgrading the line between Chicago and St. Louis for 110 mph running and so is Michigan between Pontiac and Chicago. It doesn't take rocket science to see that a Cincinnati/Louisville-Chicago fairly high speed service through Indiana would make travel a lot easier and more productive.
As usual, the bible thumping Tea Party scumbags scream about "rights" and keep taking them away.
More GOP grandstanding and plain out and out lying. Other states who have their own exchanges, such as New York, point to an average of a 40% drop in premiums. The GOP might get more respect if it starts telling the truth.
Right on the money!
The GOP is in a slow death spiral and demographics are killing it. Good riddance to bad rubbish. We need another party that will stay out of peoples lives, and that includes abortion, and present an alternative plus compromise with the Democrats.
Look at the current leaders of the GOP and try not to laugh. Pence is so typical of his home area and I hope to hell we send him back there in 2016.
