Florida needs high speed rail more than any other state. The big cities in Florida are all spaced out at approximately 250 mile intervals. People need to get from one city to another, say Jax to Tampa, all the time, but to travel from any one city to any another requires at least a tank of gas.
Smart infrastructure investing like high speed rail could very well be what we need to save this country.

Did I every claim it was perfect?Here's one example...
For French High-Speed Rail, a Lower-Cost Future Pondered « The Transport Politic
First off "outdated" is not exactly true. I just failed to mention what year. I did not know there was a deficit last year. And funny you fail to mention of the 1 billion EUROS in profit, most of it came from the high speed rail, which is still profitable for the most part. But you do also know we are in a recession right? Travel is one of the first things that get cut, just ask the airlines.BTW... your 'profit number' is outdated, and in the wrong currency, but of course you knew that and simply hoped I'd take you at your word (which isn't really worth all that much ion this board).
As for wrong currency... I stated 1 billion in profit, not stating the currency in the part you quoted. Before that in other replies I stated Euros.. so it was not the wrong currency, but you not being able to put two and two together.. not my fault.
And I must ask.. why the personal attacks?
And for the record, this guy you keep quoting, sounds like a die hard car American, that cant look past his gas guzzling SUV.
