This is great. CA is insolvent, spending more money every year than we take in, and we are buying another gadget with no practical use on the credit card.

This whole thing is a gigantic mistake. The section they want to build will cost $4 billion which means if they ever build the whole thing it will cost $80 billion or more.
The Board of this authority is just paying themselves to waste our money.
This high speed rail is NOT financially viable even if they ran one full train an hour 24 hours a day!
Stop this! Let's get an initiative going to disband this.
Come on people let's get this halted now before it spends one dime.
