High-speed rail has been in use in other countries since 1964. It remains to be seen whether this concept takes hold in America, because as Miss South Carolina would say, "We as U.S. Americans" love to drive.
If it creates jobs and helps me save gas I’m all for it. Read more below to get the nitty gritty on President Obama’s high-speed rail plan.
