of his policy and fiscal failure, the good governor has not only placed the entire NYC region at risk by failing to upgrade infrastructure, but has also cost taxpayers billions with his bungling! Nice job Chris-tell us again how cancelling the ARC project was to save us money!

Analysis: New Jersey Facing Hefty Price Tag For New Rail Tunnels

With the two century-old tunnels that carry Amtrak and NJ Transit trains into New York City badly damaged by superstorm Sandy and facing eventual year-long shutdowns for needed repair, Amtrak officials are reshaping their $13.5 billion Gateway tunnel project into a “rescue operation” that would focus on building the new rail tunnels first and worry about expanding Penn Station later.

How much New Jersey would have to kick in for the new tunnels is yet to be determined, but it is likely to cost more than the Access to the Region’s Core (ARC) rail tunnel that Gov. Chris Christie cancelled four years ago.

Congress is certainly expecting New Jersey to pay more: The Amtrak reauthorization law passed three years ago directed the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure and Operations Advisory Commission (NEC) to develop a new cost allocation formula that would ensure that there is “no cross-subsidization of commuter, intercity, and freight rail service.” The purpose is to make sure that NJ Transit and the seven other state commuter rail systems from Massachusetts to Maryland pay their fair share of both operating and capital costs with no hidden subsidy from Amtrak, whose federal subsidy is constantly under attack in the GOP-controlled House.

While the commission has already missed last Thursday’s statutory deadline for implementation of the new cost-sharing formula, NJ Transit Executive Director Veronique Hakim, who represents New Jersey on the commission, acknowledged at a recent Alliance for Action forum that NJ Transit would undoubtedly end up paying more for its use of the Northeast Corridor to run commuter trains between New York and Philadelphia.

Imagine the damage he could cause as President! Maybe we can arrange to make him the leader of a country we don't like and he could bring them to physical and financial ruin in no time. He does have the leadership style of Saddam Hussein!
