    Florida Loses $2.4 Billion For High-Speed Trains


    This is what happens when you have a governor who runs the state like businessman and a very bad one at that, instead of like a politician. There would have been job creation in this but Repugs never promised job creation in their campaigns did they? Its clear they don't fucking care.

    High speed rail is an economic loser. It has never worked, outside of one or two well traveled corridors. The guv was right. An expensive boondoggle that would have cost taxpayer money for no benefit.

    Go looking for it and you will find it, asshole. Quit being a mouthpiece for HuffPo.

    Yep. And a good portion of the citizens here don't want it because it only covers a small portion of the State, will create a few temporary jobs, and then the Taxpayers will get stuck with it.

    It's a bad deal like everything else coming out of the Disctrict of Criminals these days.

    Governments SHOULD be run like a business. The politicians have pushed most budgets into RED INK. The Governor is protecting the taxpayers as he should. And you have a problem with that?

    No shit, why would you ever want anyone who knows how to pay the bills, live on a budget, and grow? It would be much better having someone who knows nothing but how to spend, and go to the taxpayers for more money when they can't pay for nonsense like this.

    Just wait until the Legislature starts addressing Education budget. The unions here are already gearing up for it.
