it will create more jobs

Thank you for this debate, and I thank all of the voters as well.

Definition) We- the US

Rebuttal 1) My opponent states that it will create more jobs. This is true. BUT, a lot of ideas create jobs. This is one of the not as important and not as efficient ideas. The cost of this is enormous and outweighs the number of jobs created. It costs $5 billion for just TWO MILES of subway in NYC. Amtrak has a $151 billion plan for the Northeast. (1) Obviously, this costs a lot.

Argument 1) Again, mass transportation infrastructure costs a lot.

Argument 2) It's not necessary. The PRO has the burden to prove that we NEED mass transportation infrastructure. If not, I automatically win. People are fine these days and would actually get mad if taxes are increased just so we can implement this system.

I suggest all the voters look at this article.

I await my opponent's responses.
