The Deficit Chicken Hawks (washingtonpost.com): "Congress should gradually raise the eligibility ages for Social Security and Medicare to 69 or 70; make benefits less generous for the well-off elderly; fully tax all Social Security benefits; and eliminate unneeded or wasteful federal programs -- from Amtrak to farm subsidies."

If Amtrak EVER showed up on time, people might use it and it might pay for itself. High fixed costs and low utilization are a recipe for disaster... unless Uncle Sam props you up.
