"the rail authority...has no plan in place for paying for funding the $43 billion project."

That's great. Let's start building even though we don't know where the money will come from. Brilliant!

"Auditors reviewed 22 invoices and found errors or discrepancies in 20 of them."

That's 91% of the bills folks. If I had that many errors in my billings I would quickly be out of business. And remember, the rail authority hasn'r even put a shovel in the ground.

One word: BOONDOGGLE

I wonder if the poster/maker of the video got permission to use all the films in his creation. Otherwise, it's illegal.
