The California Bullet Train: Wishful Thinking Continues

Gov. Jerry Brown "unequivocally" supports the $98.5 billion (and counting) California bullet train boondoggle, it says here.

I have four words to say about that:

Ain't. Gonna. Happen. Never.

It’s time to cancel the California high speed rail project and disband CHSRA. This is due to the ballooning project costs and continuing dishonesty on the part of the California High Speed Rail Authority. The latest revelation is that claims that high speed rail would create a million jobs have been proven false. The San Jose Mercury explains “The 1-million figure came from the project's technical studies. It actually was the number of "job years," a statistical term that counts years of work rather than actual jobs. One person working for five years adds up to five job years in this parlance.”

The high speed rail project now being pushed by the Governor and the High Speed Rail Authority is not the same project that the voters approved in 2008. The Authority is guilty of pulling a “bait and switch” on taxpayers, who live in a state that is in deep denial of its financial problems.
