Buried in the news about the bipartisan agreement reached on the federal transportation bill that just passed both houses in D.C. was this report
Separately, the House approved an amendment to an annual spending bill that would prevent federal transportation funds from being spent in the next fiscal year for California’s controversial high-speed rail project.
The amendment was sponsored by Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Atwater), who cited the project’s ballooning costs. Three California Democrats - Jim Costa of Fresno, Zoe Lofgren of San Jose and Laura Richardson of Long Beach – issued a statement calling the amendment an "example of how thoughtless partisanship would hurt all of California.’’
Reps Costa, Lofgren and Richardson get the "idiots of the week" award which comes with a special stand called the "pot calling the partisan kettle black" award. "Hurt all of California"--yeah, right. At least in D.C. the adults have the purse strings on High-cost Rail.
