With $8 "BILLION" in new taxes that need to be approved in November per Jerry Brown or he will have to make drastic cuts to education.

Can we really afford HSR going through some of the most expensive property on the planet?

Hold the kids education hostage, so pet projects can be funded?

Seriously, Is this what California has become?

I am not against HSR, when we have "extra" money, we should build it.

Not when we do not have enough to deal with today.

"Just say No" to any new taxes... regardless what it is for.

We have the leader that you elected.

Instead of automatically clicking the (D) button next November, think about what your choice will do to us.

HSR fails the three question test.
Must have
Should have
It would be nice to have. This is the answer for HSR.

The taxpayers should float an Inititive. Take away the cars or cancel the payment for cars we give to the Assembly members and Senators and issue them passes for the HSR. For local use give them bus tokens.
