That directed his veteran Tara and she joins us now that's a welcome the front thanks for having facts let me make three points right -- for -- number one.
Eight billion dollars is gonna go to state governments that bankrupt they -- -- about the pensions for the former employees but it took.
High speed -- is incredibly.
Expensive we can't afford it number three.
Environmentalists will hold you up for years and years and years to come and it'll never happen.
Make -- case.
If president Eisenhower had looked at those reasons -- we're -- certain -- interstate highway system in 1956 I do not know in this country would be definitely not -- enjoyed the decades.
And growth and profit there are correct that came how many -- that are excited infrastructure and -- present and Eisenhower's administration state governments would not bankrupt.
During Eisenhower's administration did not have an environmental movement that stops everything.
Well look at the quarter that were chosen -- Tampa Florida this is the easiest to build the fastest bill.
It's not public right of way and -- straight line what is it Tampa to Orlando that's right.
Our land -- for -- -- Allen -- stop at Disneyland stop.
Linda convention center and then intermodal center and that time I was spending eight billion dollars for that one well system how much has gotten out cost.
About three million dollars you can -- build a one point one billion dollar grants announced yesterday so three billion just initial money.
But what is already a two down two and a half hour drive.
That's right but.
Got a little -- benefit.
Well what high speed rail and generate economic development right now Florida's one of the most fastest growing states but they're -- in -- -- -- so they're looking -- ways that they can continue to grow.
Without paving over the state of Florida.
People move there because they enjoy the quality of life.
They don't want the continuous -- they don't want an endless highway congestion they wanna be able to get around the state and do business -- -- and maintain the value is still my favorite movie that you can yes but what do you think -- high speed rail line between Tampa Milan it was -- be built.
What I think they can build -- in ten years ten years not quicker I haven't looked at there they're -- to the White House wanted in fool.
Just think you and -- -- it's time to do it doesn't mean it's not worth doing nobody does anything or is it some money paid and his mind why isn't.
-- -- -- It's a valuable investment look China is spending 300 billion dollars in high speed rail they're gonna blow without the -- -- is laughing we have a ain't -- on the world infrastructure system -- -- what excuse me.
You didn't -- -- have you traveled around the country I think the iron I have -- -- Wimbledon you.
Around the world is what I meant to say have you -- -- my -- I had romance level hi how are on -- record -- -- in comparison -- the types investments.
America which he does not look like it won't JFK term -- merit and look -- about the state of that actually backs up.
And almost any country I've ever -- to the Singapore apple is really cool.
The Hong Kong apple better organized -- our infrastructure is great when it comes as in 1950 when we -- -- built the interstate highways that our interests are.
Fantastic quiet parent.
I think in my grandparents' generation -- -- you go far.
I think that both have great points -- point eight billion is a drop in the bucket it will be re directed and you know what it's a farce and you for what it.
-- -- -- -- Because it's not going to be used less than forty states submitted a hundred billion dollars worth of projects if they were serious about this than it would be -- is just like the stimulus well we got a good -- On the surface what we're not gonna really do it and that's the part I'm angry about and did you think something that's sexy to redistribute money again for -- own agenda.
You're gonna get 2050 that your organization right yes -- funds you.
Private Foundation's Philanthropic foundations and corporate and if it's okay and how much money do you think it's gonna cost to build -- -- lines high speed rail line.
From from Orlando to Tampa temple one.
They estimate three million dollars but to build a national I think they'll just it would cost in the hundreds of -- But that's look America is growing at a 130 billion people to this country by 2050 million.
I guess -- -- That -- be a lot better.
If I -- -- know it where.
Where how do you think the environmentalists are so against this they are -- and let them.
I'm not again -- I -- trail okay.
You're talking about clogging it highway different environmental review process that that does I have these projects but in Florida -- do -- have -- they're ready to go.
Environmentalists will get hold of anybody who owns property next to the high speed rail line and I also like you don't want -- knowing what to strawberry was clients -- we cannot Elvis can't -- I don't -- it's -- a little bit early in your file system showed me they can go ahead project in America any major engineering project which is not held off -- well.
Yeah environment not a not build anything new and you know we should yeah.
I laurel when did you get ready -- -- -- a -- -- that -- you can build a few more overpass near the bottom I don't know -- but then got right.
