Amtrak actually makes a little money. Unlike, say, the massive socialist US interstate system.

...which makes a LOT of money (mostly from gas taxes), some of which is then spent on subsidizing Amtrak and mass transit programs.

And of course despite your Insightful rating, Amtrak loses money, over a billion dollars a year.
