I Think We’re Going NOwhere FAST

And that’s alright by me.

Florida Governor Joins Two More in Rejecting Federal High-Speed Rail Spending

Florida Gov. Rick Scott is canceling a proposed high-speed train line between Orlando and Tampa, rejecting more than $2 billion from the federal government in a move echoing decisions by Republican governors in Ohio and Wisconsin.

Scott said Wednesday the proposal is too costly for Florida and could put the state’s taxpayers on the hook for roughly $3 billion, while ridership is unlikely to pay for the operating cost, meaning the state would have to pump even more money into the line each year.

Therefore, I’d like to dedicate this song from one of favoritest ALL time flicks to my cue-ball headed Governor, ’cause “I’m dependin’ on him now”.
