Yep, no jobs for YOU. We here in Washington want to make sure the economy does not recover. That way you idiot voters will stay down there in the dirt where you belong and we can control you better.

Don't forget to come on out in November.

Makes sense... Few would ever use it, so it doesn't make economic sense... Unless the Commie Democrats intend on selling it to a foreign company by using public money to build it, then privatize it, sell it for profit and put more money in Commie pockets.

Just because it wouldn't come to the backwoods hole where you live doesn't mean it wouldn't be helpful to other people.

Idiot libs should buy themselves a toy train set and quit trying to make everyone else buy them a life-sized one. There is not a sufficient market to make this junk viable. It would require endless subsidies that will not be able to be paid.

As has been shown in every instance of high speed rail, you'd have to pay people to use it in any significant numbers. So, Commies would use your money to build it, then use your money to sell it as they have other public utilities created with your money, then use your money to get people to ride it.
