LA is failed because of to many illegals and because its location is splendid, if it weren't for all the phocking illegal Mexicans.

The CC will be a HUGE cash sinkhole..

It will lose so much the Met Council won't even publish profit/loss for the CC.

A P&L is like a cross to Dracula.
The Met council, and politics in general, do not think in those terms.
If they did we would not be $16 Trillion in debt!

Agreed, there is NO good money and bad money in Government. There is NO acountability and Liberals don't give a phock.

Just raise taxes OR raise fees.

Quicker the CC gets into operation the quicker the operating losses will start.

Correct, the Hiawatha LRT sucks $20,000,000 a year for operating expenses. Thanks to gas tax, license taxes, MVST tax, LRT rolls.

The CC will soak up an estimated $100,000,000 a year in needed subsidy. Where will that cash come from?

You need knowledge of the status of infrastucture in the USA.

Basic stuff is in useable condition but in the Twin Cities the Government refuses to add lanes to freeways instead builds bike paths which are not used in cold weather which starts now and runs through May in spring.

Rail is being installed in Minnesota but consistantly loses money and delivers a much lowere level of service than the Bus.

Government builds a $700,000,000 bridge for 15,000 vehicles and won't build %,000,000 bridges for 40,000, vehicles.

You see DENG developers in the USA make decisions using elected officials with kickbacks going to elected officials, you know corruption.

That's the way the USA functions. Sad but true.

THE OUTLINE GIVEN OF WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS EXACTLY WHAT CHINA IS DOING.

NOW WE ARE IN A RECESSION IN CHINA AT 8-PERCENT GDP GROWTH.

IT TAKES SOME WITS TO RUN AN ECONOMY, TO FIND SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE TO DO THAT'S A PRODUCTIVE WORK AND NOT WELFARE; TO CREATE NEW JOBS WHEN THE WORK HAS BEEN DONE.

The rail line has created construction jobs already and there are some apartments on the rail line that will also benefit.
