  1. What an innovator lol

  2. Normally it wouldn’t be a glamourous position, but let’s remember how much Biden likes trains…top notch analysis there *facepalm*

      It’s a stupid way to say it, but prioritizing rail is going to become very important in cutting emissions.

    • @Elizabeth Henning the big problem with the rail is that you are cutting through a LOT of private property to do so, and many of those people don’t consent to the rail coming through.

    • @Nyaboron um this America we don’t care about private property here.

  3. “Amtrak in dire straits “……..since forever

    Ah yes, appoint the frugal man to the position in need of dire spending choices. Who even needs the bus, am I right?


    That’s how I imagine how this went down.

  13. Pete, does this mean you get to pull the big train?

  14. You’re Beautiful | December 15, 2020 at 8:33 PM | Reply

    Yes. ✌🏼

  15. Throw some scraps to the ex-Mayor to keep him happy.

  16. Love Mayor Pete!!! 💙💙💙

    • A Yale study showed Medicare for All would save 68,000 American lives a year and 272,000 lives over the course of a 4 year presidential term. Mayo Pete dropped out the day before Super Tuesday to stab the candidate that supported M4A in the back. In a very literal sense he chose to sacrifice 272,000 American lives to further his own political career.

  17. Great choice. Well spoken and intelligent.

  18. Yeah let’s put money into trains, like the ones that carry coal to the power plants to charge your electric cars.

  19. Pete is going to copy everything Andrew Yang does or say…. LMAO
