High Speed Rail: Off The Track

Governor Brown: Put an end to the bullet train. Please face the facts  -- your high speed rail idea is a complete failure.  A judge has told you that the funding plan violates the law. The people of California have told you, in the latest polls, that a majority of them are against the rail project.

I'd like to hear your Point of View. Send me an email at POV@fox11.com.

Governor Brown, now you to want take $250-million-dollars of cap and trade money to fund your train. You promised cap and trade dollars would fund green projects.  Well, as I'm sure you are aware, Legislative Analyst Experts say High Speed Rail is not green.

This is a complete bait and switch. A judge has ruled that for the project to continue, in effect, it has to prove that at least $20-billion-dollars more can be raised.

Where is that money coming from? There is absolutely no evidence that it can be found. Giving $250-million-dollars to H-S-R, is just throwing good money after bad.

This train is going nowhere.

California can't afford to waste any more tax payer dollars on this project. Governor Brown admit you have made a mistake. Please stop HSR in its tracks.

Thanks for listening.
