As President Biden announces his re-election bid, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) is pumping the brakes on his boondoggle gravy trains, including California’s High-Speed train costing about $1.8 million a day over the next decade and the extension of a rail service in San Francisco that is costing more than $5 billion per mile to construct, putting it on track to be one of the costliest transit projects in the world.
“While the president boasts that his $1 trillion ‘infrastructure’ bill is building a better America, the truth is Bidenomics and bureaucratic bungling are busting budgets and postponing projects across the country,” said Ernst. “A billion dollars over budget is not a rounding error, it’s the very definition of a train wreck. As the Senate’s biggest foe of wasteful spending, I won’t sit idly by as taxpayers are railroaded by Biden’s Boondoggle Express.”
