Instead of opening your mouth to defund CA, tell your cronies to get going on the funds so we can continue our projects here.
Step down jerry brown! Your high speed rail was a joke sold to the public as a joke. When sold to the public it was going to cost 31b now it's up to 60b+??? Yeah not what we the tax payers signed up for!
The only way a high speed rail will be successful is when the price of gas is $8.00 + a gallon. We love our autos. And love driving them.
Frankly I don't care which former party or politician did or did not support high speed trains. Discussing that is just "cutting your nose of to spite your face".
Can we agree we do need cross USA high speed trains and get on wth it ?
Just teach Trump how! How to come up with budget and engineering it! That's Governor Brown's Agenda to close the commute gabs to create more jobs.
Cali's "ready" after they spend a few billion more on the lawyers and consultants who really run the state. (All of this while there's a usable right-of-way that parallels 99)
Jerry Brown put Mayor Eric Garcetti and all of the criminal illegals on that bullet train and press GO...one way trip!
Another instance of Trump speaking out of the other side of his mouth. He says whatever pops into his head without forethought or considering implications of his words. He's already said he will pull funding from California. California republicans have asked him to defund the high-speed rail system project that is already underway.

In an interview airing during Fox’s Super Bowl pregame show, Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly asked the president about the plan.
“I think it’s ridiculous,” Trump said, reiterating his opposition to sanctuary cities, which he said “breed crime.” He signed an executive order in his first week in office that threatened to withhold federal funding for cities that don't cooperate with federal immigration officials.
“If we have to, we’ll defund," Trump said. "We give tremendous amounts of money to California. California in many ways is out of control, as you know.”
Trump said it wasn’t his preference to do so, and that states and cities should get money they need “to properly operate.”
But, “if they’re going to have sanctuary cities, we may have to do that. Certainly that would be a weapon,” he said.
How about the complete lack of high speed (or any) internet services in so many rural places in the U.S.?
How many times can voters approve the high speed rail before we actually get it here in CA? 3 so far I believe, let's break ground!
