No, but we've spent trillions of dollars on it now. I think that if one were to legitimately be asking where we can cut down, the first place would be from the war. Like Iraq fend for itself, it's not our duty to make them a government. I don't want to pay for their crap when we're worrying about paying for our own crap. The only think about this high speed rail is that during normal times I would have said no. But since we're in this big depression, there are ways to use government to alivieate the stress on the middle and lower classes while producing a positive net for us all as a whole. We don't need to carve faces into a mountain, but a high speed rail system would be a huge benefit to the lot of us.
