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.”

So had Congress done as he wished mass transit would have gone bankrupt long ago and none of these people would have been on the train. Congress funded them to death.

This is correct. He was never banned. He called me a liar regarding some fact on an issue and when I proved conclusively that I was correct he wouldn't admit to it and tried to ignore his earlier bullshit statements... so I screwed with two of his posts and he left in a huff.

Yep. I was all about birth control prices and the Sandra Fluke nonsense. He called me a liar for saying you could get birth control for less than $15/month. It turned out it was closer to $12 actually. Then he refused to acknowledge it.

And all you did was screw with his posts? For an egregious infraction like that?
Should have been an insta-permaban.

I remember the fight. I remember him being po'd about what you did. I just thought you banned him for it. Not permanently though. Just thought I saw that somewhere, because I didn't watch it all the way to the end.

Nope. No banning just a tiny bit of mod abuse... and then he melted down completely and left.

I remember posting the pdf of Wal Mart's $4 Rx list with birth control pills on it. I don't remember if that was the thread.
