This is fun to watch. The Libs beating themselves bloody. The price has gone up by tens of millions of dollars because of these fools, and will continue to go up again and again.
$1 Billion will look cheap for this choo-choo train by the time they are done.

Once complete the SW LRT will move 20K commuters at the cost of $2,000,000,000 +$30,000,000 a year from the taxes paid by ROAD users.
A 20K reduction in commuters from a total of 500,000(?) what a waste.
MnDOT builds highways on a 1/4 mile wide swath of realestate, 4 lanes on 1/4 mile wide swath, time to hurl.
It's time to ADD LANES to all metro highways, actually now goat trails.

I doubt there will be anywhere near 20K commuters from that neighborhood. They over estimated the ridership for the Northstar, and it would actually make sense for those folks to use the train. The people in SW love their cars, and will not leave the Prius in the garage.
