The New Green Deal talks about a nationwide network of bullet trains that would render air travel obsolete. They should have looked at California’s experience. The project is more than a decade behind schedule and many billions over budget.
California Governor Gavin Newsom pulled the plug on the San Francisco to Los Angeles portion of the track. He pledged to finish the track from Merced to Bakersfield.
Let’s hope this cools the desire for bullet trains.
At long last this idiotic shutdown is over. Hopefully cooler heads prevail and it doesn’t start up again.
The real story is that 800,000 government workers are back on the job and many millions of people are no longer inconvenienced.
Unfortunately, that is not the story we are hearing in the media. Their story is about how Speaker Pelosi beat President Trump. He got himself into this mess. She decided that all that mattered was winning. The harm done to the people involved was of no concern whatsoever. A good leader puts the good of the people over political gamesmanship,
it would be nice to think that both people have learned their lesson and will try to do what is best for the
country. I sure wouldn’t bet on it.
