Conservative reporter Laura Ingraham of Fox News fame just exposed a massive cover-up that has taxpayers holding their pocketbooks even closer.
She’s calling this scandal “the liberal train to nowhere,” and she means it quite literally. California took $3.5 billion in grants for a high-speed rail connecting San Francisco to Los Angeles and has now canceled the project due to cost. But get this: Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is keeping the money. Outrageous!
President Trump wasted no time asking for the money back, tweeting, “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars”. Newsom has predictably refused. “That’s a typical liberal, he thinks it’s their money – that other people’s money is their money,” said Ingraham. “It’s the taxpayers’ money, Gavin.”
Newsom’s decision to keep billions of dollars for a project he’s essentially canned brings up an interesting point. Ingraham said, “Think of all of the Congressional Democrats who right now are opposed to spending $5 billion on a wall that will help the entire country”. She couldn’t be more right. Once again, Democrat hypocrisy in on full display: Slush funds for them are okay, but border security for America isn’t worth their attention.
