Budget proposal would end Amtrak service in Kansas cities

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A budget proposal that puts a passenger train route that passes through Kansas at risk is raising concerns. The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/2pJGetT ) reports that President Donald Trump's budget calls for the elimination of federal subsidies for some money-losing long-distance train routes.

So I guess we will never see the Amtrak Superliner Cowshitrunner in Kansas. Just when I was thinking the route between Hays and Atchison was going to save the rail business in America.

So much for making America great again. I thought he was going to fix our broken third world infrastructure.

If Trump can save coal mines, then rail should be easy.

Please don't tell me Trump is going to start breaking campaign promises.

Screw Kansas. There is nothing in that God-forsaken place worthy of a train route.
