Reason #847 Why I’ll Never Vote for Bill Nelson


Democrat Nelson looks to sidestep Scott’s refusal of U.S. rail money

…“We are exploring with the Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, how we could keep this project going forward since the state of Florida will not participate. We have the lawyers researching it,” Nelson told The Palm Beach Post.

Oh, peachy. (And hey! Did anyone one besides these guys notice other flaws in the meticulous planning for BILLIONS of Federal spending…?)

…”what’s the point of spending millions on separate train lines in the same area if there’s no way to switch between them?


Not only did Rick Scott mercifully kill the thing the other day, people (like OUR ELECTED DEMOCRATIC U.S. SENATOR) keep forgetting that, in 2004, an OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of Florida voters killed it themselves at the polls:

…That was the essence of Florida voters’ behavior on Nov. 2nd. Sunshine Staters went to the polls that day and defeated the very same constitutional mandate for a state bullet-train network ( that they’d approved in 2000.

And the outcome was certainly no Bush-Gore nail-biter. Sixty-four percent of 2004 Florida voters cast a “yes” ballot on Amendment 6, repealing the bullet-train appendage to the state’s constitution.

Of course, if they can wangle the bucks without the state ponying up the cash, then they’re major magicians/big heros, right? But I think it’s a slap in the face of every other American to blow the money independently on this crap. BFD. It’s bringing X amount of jobs to Orlando (who, by the way, is the city really pushing it). They’re temporary. And you’ll have an empty, expensive boondoggle overhead from Tampa to Orlando that no one can afford to ride, even if they had a reason to, because the fares will have to skyrocket to make the bond repayments.

Or the state will have to subsidize it because Orlando will fold, which translates to “we get screwed anyway”.

Bill, buddy…

I can see 2012 from my house…

    Bad cosmetic surgery, or has he always looked like that?

    They are doing the same high speed rail thing here in CA. No one will use it. I recently took the Coaster from Carlsbad to San Diego and came home at rush hour in the evening. This commuter train was almost empty. Exactly why do we need another? Have they bothered to do a study on how many people actually travel from San Diego to LA to the Bay Area on a daily basis? Of course not.

    2012 can’t get here fast enough.

    Nelson just radiates his arrogance, doesn’t he?
