This is even dumber than I thought possible. Rail lines last for centuries but busses only add to congestion. I suppose Obama is caving in to the petroleum cartel like he caved in to them and the militarists.

Seeing how close Obama is with the unions that now control
Government Motors

I remember when some big cities pulled trolley lines to
make way for GM buses.

I can see it now, buses traveling 150MPH on the shoulder of the road.... and then weaving in and out of interstate traffic. And retrofitting buses "for as little as $50.00"

Not even the American government could dream this up, only The Onion..
