Vote out pushers of flawed projects

So the failed YARTS scheme is curtailing its (unwanted) service to the southern Yosemite entrance due to lack of ridership and government subsidies.

Further, “Relocation of Highway 99 in Fresno, a key part of the bullet train project, is over budget, behind schedule and will cost millions of dollars more to complete, officials said Monday.” (Los Angeles Times)

Do you think for an instant that the local and state politicians (you know who they are) who supported these flawed, if not fraudulent, attempts at considerable taxpayer expense will learn anything from the experience? Of course not, which speaks to their being removed from the offices of public trust before they further socialize/bankrupt our county and state.

The difference between a hand-up and a hand-out always seems to allude those self-righteous custodians of the nanny state.
