How long are California taxpayers going to subsidize rail travel?

It's an industry that can't support itself on it's own and year after year has to have taxpayer support to pay the bills.

Now you want to even spend more taxpayer money to build a rail system that will lose even more money year after year, only to provide what for California..? a thousand jobs..? The trains are not even manufactured in California and I'll be the rails are not either. Sounds like another state is going to be using that California Tax money instead of Californians.

Sorry we got rid of horse, buggy, and rail travel years ago. We use planes now.

They can go in any direction and get there 10 times as fast for less cost per passenger.
