"Now that you have heard all the rhetoric about mass transit, steel on steel, fixed guideway from the politicians, experts, and engineers, let’s apply some good old common sense to the issue before we are asked to make that leap of faith in supporting the largest and most expensive public project in the state’s history. It is also time to understand some of the rhetoric and how many of the statements being made are less that forthright and honest. Finally, let’s look at why the drive to build this project represents a hidden agenda. It is time to have a frank and open discussion about what is truly a benefit for a select few." --Lowell Kalapa, Tax Foundation of Hawaii
