We have a divided capital, for better or for worse. We also have one chamber led by a Senator who has made a point of bragging about being obstructionist.
In addition, as much as I like him, I highly suspect Biden may end up being a 1 term president.
I think that ties his hands.
That said, I think he'll be a master of what's possible.
Gateway - will happen. He'll negotiate in good faith and get NJ and NY to come to an agreement and Congress to kick in the rest.
Baltimore tunnels - maybe
New Baltimore Penn, I don't think it has enough exposure, but might be part of another deal.
BWI - only a maybe.
Amfleet 3 order - almost certain. It'll be a multi-year deal packaged as part of a jobs program.
New routes - only if states pony up, the administration won't do much here, but won't actively try to harm it.
Superliner 3 order - distant possibility but not a high priority.
Basically he'll get stuff done that's a huge and visible priority and brag about it.
He'll help get funding for a good state of repair as part of a general transportation bill, but won't make a huge deal of it.
And beyond that, if he can couch it as jobs program, he's got a chance of making it happen.
But we won't see amazing things. We won't see Amtrak double in size, etc.
He's a fan, but practical and knows how much political capital he has.
