John Kerry Wants Federal High-Speed Rail Funds Rick Scott Rejected
He branded it "Obamarail" -- even though the project was championed by Scott's Republican predecessor in office, Charlie Crist.
Now Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is leading his state's lawmakers in requesting that money for rail projects between Boston and Washington, D.C.
"We can use this money to revolutionize our transportation infrastructure," Kerry says, "create jobs, ease traffic congestion, and save oil."
But goddammit -- we like all that shit too!
Meanwhile, two Florida state senators, one from each party, have filed a lawsuit claiming Scott is obligated by law to accept the federal funds.
Scott might succeed at one thing heretofore thought impossible: making us miss Charlie Crist.
