Now, I have no personal interest in a high speed rail network, because I have no plans to visit Tampa, but by rejecting $2 billion in federal money for the rail network, Scott has fucked the state.
The rail line has been in the works for something like 20 years, and prior governors Crist, Bush and Chiles spent lots of money developing the idea.
All that money has already been appropriated, so it’s not as though the money is going to be saved. It’s already been appropriated for the purpose of building high speed rail networks, so it will probably end up going to California. Or South Dakota. Who knows?
He’s screwing over residents of his own state to poke Obama in the eye. What a douche.
