Report Los Angeles 2028 in Los Angeles, USA 2024 / 2028 Olympic Games Bid Posted February 3, 2020 On 1/13/2020 at 2:09 PM, Quaker2001 said: Please don't turn into a certain banned poster here because he's not around anymore and pretend like everything is going to be okay with your reasoning being "because 1984" Did you bother to read the article that stryker posted which talks about a potential funding shortage for Metro project, possibly in large part because they're being accelerated due to the Olympics? Yes, I'm aware these projects were approved before the Olympic bid. Have you considered that these projects will now be more expensive than they would have been otherwise *beacuse* of the Olympics? If the private sector kicks in the money, then it's not an issue. Otherwise, where else do you suppose they'll get the money from. Give this a read.. L.A. Officials Use Olympics as Cover to Spend $26 Billion on Transit Projects That Have Little to Do With the Games I know it's a popular talking point to talk about how these infrastructure projects are independent of the Olympic bid. That's accurate, but look at the consequences of that. And if we're talking 8 years out about things not being finished and already talking about a "Plan B," then maybe that's not a good thing and there is at least a tiny level of concern that everything won't be as perfect as it was in 1984.
