In an interview with CalWatchdog contributor Chris Reed, KFI 640 AM’s John and Ken discussed the fiasco that is the California bullet-train project, which they call the “Browndoggle.”
The interview begins at the 5:35 p.m. point of their Friday show — about halfway through this podcast.
It focused on topics familiar to Cal Watchdog readers.
— The implications of federal belt-tightening for future funding from Congress.
— The indifference of state and federal regulators and legislators to the ways the California High-Speed Rail Authority is breaking not just promises but laws.
— The unrealistic hopes that the Obama administration has raised for state bullet-train fans about the prospects for massive new federal funding.
— The ideological cheerleading for the bullet train that one often sees on the pages of the state’s biggest newspapers.
