Administration Announces Rail Project Pushing

Vice President Joe Biden announced the plans to implement high speed rail lines in America by asking Congress for 53 billion.
Speaking from 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, the nation's only rail line that approaches a high speed, Biden gave hope that in 25 years, 80 percent of the country would be connected by a high speed rail line, according to the New York Times.
The vice president's speech was met by concerns on spending, when the government has little to go around. Many expressed concern that their roads and bridges needed the attention and funding more, according to the LA Times.
Though met with difficulty from the Republican majority, many proponents of the project emphasized their appreciation for the investment in our future.
