Jerry says people that are against his train are small-minded.

"People say, 'How are you going to fund the railroad?' " Brown said. "I'll tell you how we're going to fund the railroad. We're going to take back the Congress and then a Democratic congress is going to put the high-speed rail in the infrastructure bill and then we'll get that trillion dollars and we'll put America back to work."

He's delusional. All that needs to happen is for Democrats to take control of the House, Senate, and Presidency and then give California $100 billion. Of course it still wouldn't meet the requirements that California voters approved.

PSYCHED about this! You have to respect Elon Musk's (and the Hyperloop Engineers') to just push it until it breaks. They are coming damn close to meeting the self-imposed schedule they have set too.

And, oh yeah, no public funding!
