Question about AMTRAK, OUTRAGE & Government Waste !- OCCUPY AMTRAK (REALLY)!?

Why do people never seem to get angry at how much waste of tax dollars is done by Amtrak? Is it our nostalgia of trains or government official and wealthy who squash the stories? Our Train station has been under construction - well the parking lot anyway! LOL! Apparently the worked to slow ( Amtrak Employees and Contractors ) so now they need more money! They also want 75K to do a study about the needs for parking ( after) they did the parking ?? HUH? PLease explain this? The worst part has ALWAYS BEEN conditions inside the station( very old station)- the stairs to the platforms are so rusty and bad they have weak spots, the roof has had leaks for years and it needs painting a major wall repairs/electric etc....... Guess what - they ran out of money before touching ANY of that? Now employees for AMTRAK have better retirement that any company I know of and they have a great benefits package- yet they work slower than molasses in January.They all milk the job because they know they can! Yet people go after TEACHERS and Unions??????? Why aren't they OUTRAGED at paying TAXE$ - BIG dollar$ for AMTRAK??????????????????????????????????????????????? I think we should sell the trains to private companies that could turn it around and MAKE a profit! Stop the waste!
