Ronald Reagan at fault for DC Metro crash

According to the House Majority Leader anyway....


Quote:
Hoyer Blames Reagan for D.C. Metrorail Crash

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md, is using the fatal D.C. Metro accident to slam the Reagan administration for failure to adequately fund public transportation a quarter-century ago.



Yet the accident occurred despite the fact that Congress ignored Reagan and funded Metro anyway, CNSNews.com pointed out.



Hoyer was asked during a press briefing Tuesday about the role of Congress in remedying the safety problems that have plagued Washington’s Metrorail system – and about a 2006 National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report outlining the inability of some subway cars to survive catastrophic crashes.



Hoyer said he was aware of the report, CNSNews.com reported.



“I want to say that to the extent that that contributed to the injuries and the loss of life here, we need to look at that and that will be obviously impetus for making these cars safer,” Hoyer said. “As you know, it’s been 30 years, and as you know, the Reagan administration recommended no further money towards mass transit.”



Hoyer then went on to describe his interpretation of Reagan administration mass transit policy.



“Congress did not adopt that recommendation,” Hoyer said, adding that Congress chose to provide funds anyway.



“In fact, Metro has received probably more federal funds than any other metro system in the country,” he said.



Despite criticizing the 40th president’s stance on federal funding, Hoyer admitted he was not ready to conclude that a lack of resources might have contributed to the accident.



“We don’t know yet whether this was a human error, computer error, (or) equipment error,” he said, “all of which are, I suppose, possible.”

Yep, it is obviously Reagan's fault. After all there have been no other administrations since he left office, right?

It would be fun to force him into a corner, sort of an, "Are you really that ignorant about the role of congress, and your job, as the people that actually control the budget, or are you point the blame elsewhere when you were not able to remedy this issue when the democrats controlled congress with Clinton as President?"

All but a select few of these guys need to be rounded up and put on a boat to the Alaskan wilderness. Our so called "representatives" (both parties) are so out of touch with the average citizen, it makes me want to yack. Most of these guys seem to have one goal in mind. Grab as much money as they can while in offce and live a long fat life on our dime.

Corrupt useless bastards.

Well Said,

As dumb as the average person on the street seems to be these days, we couldn't be any worse off if we stuck all the registered voters names in a hat and selected our representatives that way.

That's what happens when your government is in the pocket of multinational corporations and special interests. They don't care if the rest of us get trampled.
