After Gov. Scott turned down the $2.5 billion for a high-speed rail line, Sen. Schumer of New York put in a bid for it. Because it was allocated as a part of Obama’s $852 billion dollar stimulus, must it be spent? And, by New York, the second most debt-ridden state in the country?
The first debt-ridden state, California, was also allocated billions for a high-speed rail between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. It will cost the state billions to operate. Yet, I have read nothing about Gov. Brown refusing the money. No wonder the national debt is out of sight.
