What a system!
It seems to me that you have not considered the present, wonderful state of our upgraded highway, that our government is even now expanding for our use!
Our present transport system is well supplied with all necessities by our wonderful oil companies; why rock the boat? Our government profits exceedingly well from this present system as does oil companies — what a system, that is organized for your benefit!
Knowing all this, you propose an economical plan of $431 million [for rail] which will compete with the present convoluted system. Tut tut.
