Remember the heat Scott Walker took for stopping this type of debacle in Wisconsin? California is near economic collapse, voters have soured on this boondoggle and they have no way to pay the $70 billion dollar total cost. Even some democrats realized how insane this was. But not enough of them.
And while it happened rather quietly, in late June the feds reimbursed Wisconsin for the money already spent on the rail project Walker pulled the plug on. Of course, even when the California project turns out to be an unmitigated disaster libs here won't admit Walker was right.
