Trump administration cancels $929 million in California high speed rail funds

The Trump administration said on Thursday it was formally cancelling $929 million in previously awarded funding for California’s high-speed rail program. The railway regulator, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), said on Thursday it had canceled the funding claiming the state had ’repeatedly failed to comply’ and ’failed to make reasonable progress on the project’.

saving the country almost a billion dollars in wasteful spending, tax revenue is increasing thanks to the tax cuts, and unemployment is at a 50 year low, But don't worry guys, Adam Schiff has proof that will get the monster responsible for these crimes behind bars.

The Dems managed to grossly mismanage a project with a boatload of fed money ready for spending. Imagine what would they do with our taxes they are so eager to hike up.

California makes so much money, why do we even send them federal money anymore? They've blatantly contradicted federal law for decades, most of that money never goes into infrastructure, it goes into the pocket of whoever is in charge of the project, and then people wonder why it never got done. They do the same shit in upstate NY, pay an arm & a leg in taxes to fix the cities, but to hell with the rest of the state amirite? Trump needs to get on this and fix it before any serious infrastructure bills get passed.

The original backer of the project came out against it. High-Speed rail is pointless if it has to stop every 60 miles, which is what they were planning. Even my own lunatic bug-eyed governor has backed out. https://reason.com/video/quentin-kopp-bullet-train-flashman/

Trump is a bad guy. Californians tooooootally needed a billion dollar train line to connect LA to SF. They couldn’t just by a 40 dollar plane ticket.

Trump is about to launch a land invasion of Iran. To everyone pretending to be fiscally conservative just stop. Iraq alone has cost 7 trillion already. Iran will easily push past 20. Fun fact if the US cut it's military budget by 85% it would still have the most powerful military on the planet.
