California to spend money no one has for a rail system no one will use.
It’s sad, but what else would you expect from California these days? I mean hell they voted for Jerry Brown again!
On Thursday, the California High Speed Rail Authority board unanimously approved the 65-mile “train to nowhere” that would link two tiny towns at a cost of $4.15 billion, all because the state didn’t want to lose $2 billion in federal stimulus funds.
The rail line would connect two central California towns, Borden and Corcoran, with a combined population of 25,000. But that’s merely an estimate from Democratic Rep. Dennis Cardoza, an opponent of the plan. In reality, the San Jose Mercury News notes, Borden “is an unincorporated community for which the U.S. Census Bureau doesn’t even keep official population estimates.”
When will Liberals realize that only they want rail systems that even they won’t use?
