On second thought, we’ll take that high speed rail money


Republicans in the N.C. General Assembly will drop their opposition to accepting $545 million in federal money for high-speed rail projects, state Sen. Bob Rucho told Charlotte business leaders Friday.  This, despite the fact that passenger rail loses money and the maintenance costs for this boondoggle will be enormous.  Who is benefiting from this?  Follow the money. via Charlotte Business Journal

  1. State Republicans have caved, succumbing to the lure of “free” money from Washington. What happened to “Stop the spending!” Where do they think all this “free” money is coming from? NC Republicans have been bought and are now owned by the Washington establishment. They have sold their principles for a bribe, a bribe paid from our own pockets.

    They can no longer look us in the eye and expect us to believe anything they have to say. Tea Party, it is time to start looking for new representatives.
