With great fanfare, the government announced it will invest billions for the future of our country in ....

A subway line from the financial district to Schiphol Airport. An estimated 1.5 billion(!) for 8 kilometers of above-the-ground railway track. There's a already highway along the same route. There's already light rail along the same route.

1.5 billion is about half of what the country spends on welfare. Just so that a banker can catch his plane on time.
