SELL AMTRAK

Amtrak is bleeding money - it hasn't made a buck in decades! Their ticket prices are way too high to compete with the dozens of bus companies that sell northeast corridor tickets far cheaper. Sell the whole thing and charge the winning bidder a yearly cut off their profits or revenues. A private company will better compete with bus companies and attract more riders with improve service. Force the winning company to keep all current employees for at least a year and give them stock to provide a sense of ownership. More train riders also means less pollution!
