In Response to Funding for Amtrak by puzzlegramma
The Republican party has always had a hard spot for AMTRAK. Over the years they have tried to gut the program and eliminate all federal funding for the system. Bush wanted to slash all funding for Amtrak a couple of years before he was finally given his eviction notice from the White House. the Congress at that time not only shut his proposal down, but they added a few million to sweeten the pot. that was the last time, however that Amtrak's budget request was ever fully funded.
