RE: Amtrak's high-speed rail vision for 2040: New York to Washington in 96 minutes
IN response to the comment about the subsidized cost of Amtrak - most people forget that the roadways are also subsidized - drivers don't pay toll on the vast majority of the roads in the US - all that road work going on is funded through taxes, and represent a subsidy to drivers. That subsidy is much greater than the Amtrak subsidy (I don't remember the exact numbers, but I'm sure you could look it up).
