Brown, Steinberg, Union, etc., have declared war on California taxpayers and US taxpayers to pursue a massive financial sink hole. No one has any confidence that California can do any project well (i.e., on time, on budget and with quality). Just look at the Bay Bridge Retrofit. Pick any project the state has done in the last 20 years and you see only failures. Now is the time to kill Brown's tax measure in November and force Brown and the Dems to "cut the size of government" in terms of manpower, pay and benefits, etc. Now is the time to get the rest of the US taxpayers to force their representative to NOT fund this train mess. No state, especially California, can afford to pay so much for the benefit of so few and even fewer paid high wages to build this train mess. Note No in November.

It is sad to see a migrant family with an old broken down truck on the side of the road in California. I say, use the money to buy these people who pick our crops new trucks.
