More on government not being a business

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), speaking about high-speed rail:
If you can't prove it's viable from a business plan, it's not a (project) the government should be funding.
I'm pretty sure this is the opposite of true. If something is viable as a business, it does not need government funding. Such funds should be reserved for things like education, health care for the poor and elderly, police, a military, etc., that are inherently unprofitable.
