This makes me sick to my stomach:

U.S. Sen. Diane Feinstein’s husband Richard Blum won the first-phase construction contract for California’s high-speed rail.

As the article notes, her hubby-owned firm submitted the lowest bid, a hair under $1 billion.  But...

”The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile.”
$35 million per mile.  That is just disgusting.

What the hell has Feinstein done for not just Californians but Americans other than using her office to steer our foreign and domestic policies into a quagmire while putting the burden on taxpayers in order to line up the pockets of her friends and family?  But living large by ripping off the people she's elected to represent just isn't enough. She needs to keep We The People on a leash by spying on all Americans because we may rise up and say, "Enough is enough!" one day. She can't have that. She and her ilk won't allow it.

Feinstein is the ultimate insider. She is our ruler.  And She is absolutely corrupt to the core.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
