Response to Wellstone ruled (Reply #7)

Thu Oct 22, 2020, 01:43 PM

8. Yep. You know Amtrak could always use the money.

Biden's charter was likely a boon for them, and the free advertising they received over time was a nice little bonus. The tortuous logic in this letter that claims the charter somehow hurt Amtrak is just unreal.

We are concerned that the apparent use of a struggling, resource-deprived, publicly-run service for political gain does not serve the best interests of Amtrak or the American taxpayers at this time.

Then they go on: You didn't give him a discount, did you? Did he make any freight trains run late? Has anyone else ever done this? Where are the time sheets for everyone working for Amtrak who was even slightly involved? Basically: here's a long list of questions we want you to waste your time and resources answering for us. It will take many man hours and we all know it's meaningless, partisan BS on our part, but your funding could be on the line in future, so hop to it! While Amtrak may have made money from Biden's charter, we are going to cost you money by sending you out on this snipe hunt, because we are shameless, oblivious idiots blahblahblah.

Unbelievable. Biden's reply was the perfect slap back.
