Mass transit and the bailout

So I'm reading an article about Seattle's great new streetcar system and the author comments that the cars were made in the Czech Republic and asks why we don't have any manufacturers here in the U.S.. Michael Moore was right. The auto industry bailout and stimulus package should have included requirements and contracts for them to switch some plants over to mass transit projects.

That would be an investment in our infrastructure, not money down the drain.
