Where Is The Stimulus Grant for Education...

Original post made by Joe on Jan 28, 2010

A $2.25B stimulus grant was awarded today to the California high speed train project "that virtually guarantees construction will begin...within 2 1/2 years." With all of California's economic and employment and education problems, is this money well spent? I know that education could use the money NOW not a "high-speed" train.

Yes Joe just another thoughtless Obama plan. He just doesn't get it. Who is giving him this terrible advice? Keep on spending and ruin our country. My kids will be paying for years to come. Just wait people and watch your taxes go up even more.
