While at the World Ag Expo, Newt Gingrich expressed: “I am for high-speed trains that are economically rational. But I am against high-speed trains that become basically just a large tax-payer subsidy, so that a handful of unionized workers have a brief period of feeling good.”

Pretty much sums it up; high-speed rail will be a drain on tax-payers and will ruin Central Valley businesses (and homes.)
