Trump cancels $929 Million Grant to California for ill fated "Bullet Train".

Nostra

Good. Bullet trains are a black hole for tax dollars, especially in the hands of idiot Diwmingers in Kalifornia.


The Trump administration says it's terminating a federal agreement with California's high-speed rail project and taking away nearly $1 billion in funding, setting up yet another legal fight between California and the White House.

In a statement released Thursday, the Federal Railroad Administration says California has "repeatedly failed to comply" with the agreement and "failed to make reasonable progress on the project."

It adds that the state has "abandoned its original vision of a high-speed passenger rail service connecting San Francisco and Los Angeles, which was essential to its applications for FRA grant funding." The statement also said the FRA was still exploring "all options" to get back $2.5 billion in federal funds it had already awarded for the project from the state.

It’s one of them. High speed trains work extremely well in Europe. No reason why our rail system should be so antiquated.
Europe has much more concentrated populations. California already has multiple highways, trains and air travel covering that route. The train to nowhere would NEVER operate without further heavy subsidies.

Why is it to nowhere? You’re begging for attention for that. I’ll bite. Wouldn’t they connect several of the largest cities in the country?

We have a promotion here where you can get solar panels on your roof for free, then cut up some or all of your power bill. Solar has a future in this country.
How well do the panels work on smoggy days and NOTHING is for FREE, someone had to pay for it.

AMTRAK $100's of millions in the Red and the Bullet Train will only operate in one state.

Free to me. And it’s much cleaner than most of the alternatives.
Free to you and you don't give a damn WHO had to pay for it as long as it's FREE to YOU. Same mentality of those seen shopping with food stamps!

You’re right, but it’s cheaper in the long run for everybody, as it’s more sustainable and cheaper to maintain. It is also cleaner for the environment.

When you do you taxes do you take any deductions? If so, you’re on “welfare” too.
