The Democrats in California have just voted to spends billions of dollars for high speed rail, thereby killing California.
From Sacramento Bee: By a bare majority, the state Senate voted Friday to approve
initial construction on California's $68 billion high-speed rail
project, ending months of intense lobbying and uncertainty in the
The approval was a major legislative victory for Gov.
Jerry Brown, who lobbied lawmakers before the vote and celebrated with
Democratic legislative leaders off the Senate floor immediately after. http://www.sacbee.com/2012/07/07/4615291/high-speed-rail-squeaks-through.html
Question: How many miles of high speed rail do we have in the United States?
Answer: Zero, none, nada
California is going to spend billions on a fantasy while cutting social programs, school aid and emergency responders.
Further, if this thing ever gets built, California taxpayers will be subsidizing the high speed rail forever.
Now, if Brian Sandoval, governor of Nevada was smart, he would be on a plane tomorrow, knocking on doors of California businesses and begging them come to Nevada. Governors from other states will probably be doing the same thing.
Do the Democrats even care or are just plain stupid that they are killing their State? Probably not.
And as far as the Nevada Desert Express, our version of high speed rail, this is not good news as there are not going to be any links to the Desert Express to Victorville or anywhere else close to there.
So, thanks to California Democrats, they are going to kill California while helping other states who will benefit from their stupidity.
