(Fox News)   Congress is letting 55 tax breaks expire at the end of this year. FIFTY FIVE. I mean, it would have been one thing if they let 40 expire, or 45, or hell, even 50. But FIFTY FIVE??? RIP America, 1776 - 2013   ( divider line

joness0154: That makes sense, because people who utilize public transit don't work and create wealth

Public transit where I live is nothing more than a rolling homeless shelter.

(nor do they reduce traffic, fuel consumption, pollution, etc.)

Pollution? I work on the 4th floor of an office building on a busy bus route. Even through closed windows, I can hear them as they go past. The pollution from them can be tasted in the air. But it's OK I guess, because I don't smoke. And the street is usually jammed with buses the entire day, each with about 2 people on them.

Encouraging the use of public transportation, where available, is much more sensible than encouraging driving.

Really? That's the most idiotic thing I've read in the last... 5 minutes. Public transit is not, and never will be, the answer. The only mode of travel that has been shown to be effective and efficient for working people is the private car.
