In an unprecedented move yesterday, Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters went before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and asked that all FY 2009 money be put towards transit expansion. "I'm not sure what we were thinking all these years." she stated before a shocked committee. "The auto is obsolete and transit is the way we must grow our transportation networks."
From the Oval Office President Bush said he approved of the move, hoping that states would appreciate the bold new approach his administration would take. "This funding would expand transit by 100 miles in every city in the United States, that means more jobs for our steel workers and more transportation options for everyone, allowing them to pocket 10% of their income a year instead of spending it on their car." Oh...and April Fools.
