12. Amtrak

isn't meant to make money. It is meant to help travelers and by doing so helps businesses across the nation. This is the same for our roads. They do not make money, they are there to facilitate travel and they also help spur and sustain business. There is no corruption in Amtrak so I would really like to know what the excuse to privatize would be. Also, since the government does need to subsidize the system, I highly doubt any private entity would even want to take it on. If ticket prices rose too much, people would just fly. Romney is just speaking out his ass to his idiot base.
