Rail we DON'T need:

In late-stage talks, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., pressed for $8 billion to construct high-speed rail lines, quadrupling the amount in the bill that passed the Senate on Tuesday.

Reid's office issued a statement noting that a proposed Los Angeles- to-Las Vegas rail might get a big chunk of the money.

$8 billion taken from taxpayers throughout the nation to funnel gamblers from LA into the Las Vegas casinos ... and Las Vegas just happens to be the home state of the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of NEVADA. Coincidence, coincidences.

Besides the fact that we DON'T need high speed rail at this juncture, we need more regular rail, we sure as hell don't need high speed rail to Las Vegas of all places.

This is PORK on speed.
