No one is going to even question the idea of spending billions of dollars on transit infrastructure that will be even slower than the current buses we have on the ground now?

There are no plans for streetcar priority, and streetcars stuck in mixed traffic on their own tracks are notoriously prone to delay compared to buses, which can easily pull around obstructions.

Instead of some dreamy back-to-the-future plan for streetcars everywhere, why aren't we asking the District to prioritize and make faster the current fleet of buses (Circulator and Metro) that are currently operating on these corridors?

Does no one else question a "Desire Named Streetcar?"
