Way to go, Jerry Brown. Your 1970s futurama supertrain fantasy is dead. You threw injured workers under the bus for an obsolete-on-arrival vanity project white elephant. With a rushed through bill that your allies didn't even read. I said at the time that high speed rail was a boondoggle but it just goes to show that well-connected green billionaires and senator's husbands matter more than the little people you claimed to represent.

So basically Jerry Brown could have just cut out all the complexity by taxing low to middle wage injured California workers and giving all the money to billionaire Richard Blum, who happens to be Feinstein's husband.

But he liked so much to tell us how he was against plutocrats and for the working man.

We completely agree on this JobMD.

SB863 was DEAD until JB walked the halls of congress telling all the dems he needed them to switch gears and get on board to save his bullet train from lawsuits to stop his train -- that is what I read is various blogs at least.

Basically, depression and other mood problems from chronic pain producing physical injuries was said to he non-compensable, even though we ALL know it does exist.

The workers of California are all affected to this day for this pipe-dream legacy play!

A greedy, plutocratic extortion racketeer working behind the facade of a good vibes moonbeam hippie.

But he fooled an electorate that wanted to be fooled.
