Governor, Thanks?

Florida Governor Rick Scott reverses a move that made the state of Florida the laughing stock of the nation for about a week. Within weeks of taking office he rejected $2.4 billion in federal dollars to aid the state in building a highspeed rail between Orlando and Tampa. The SunRail as the project is called, had been debated for at 2 to 3 years prior to Rick Scott's arrival and was heavily backed by his own Republican party. The move was more than gutsy manuver to stick it to the Obama Administration as it was characterized, it was at the very least ill-informed as it crossed too many people politically and cost the state approximately 70,000 jobs. The case was taken to the Florida Supreme Court and the courts sided with him. (which was crazy)

But now that Rick Scott has made national news as the Governor with the worst approval rating in the country (In the whole freaking United States of America!!!) he has Ok'd the use of the Federal dollars. This is when states like California and North Carolina have their eyes on it. Is it even still available. Luck would have it that it isn't and he just not what to look like the bad guy.
