Matt Yglesias says listen to Robert Reich. I agree.
Robert Reich says it's nuts that we don't have sufficient mass transit to meet demand.
Public transit has always been the poor stepchild of infrastructure development. America's usual answer to traffic congestion has been to add more lanes on highways, or more highways, or more bridges and tunnels for more cars. America hasn’t been really serious about public transit for almost a century.
Unfortunately, we've got some bridges to fix first.
