Today we award our coveted Golden Fleece Award for government waste to the California High-Speed Rail Authority – the geniuses in charge of building The Golden State’s bullet train from San Francisco to Anaheim.
The first 118 mile segment of this Choo-Choo To Nowhere is already projected to run $3.5 to $4.5 billion over its $6.4 billion budget. And it’s 7 years behind schedule. And they haven’t acquired rights to over half the land they need to lay track on.
The only thing “high speed” about this government disaster is the destruction of your tax dollars.
