Some Congressmen have placed in in budgets. Trump could veto, unless it passed Congress with a veto proof majority. We will see.

Though Trump can change his mind like the wind, perhaps they'll catch him on a good day and get the money. You never know with him.

Maybe they need to get a sexy woman to approach Trump on transportation. Kim Kardashian got him to release a woman given life for cocaine dealing.

Can we acknowledge that phase 3 and 4 will never be built in our lifetimes? That's the bigger takeaway.

The city has a lifetime beyond our lifetimes. Those hoses still need to be built WHEN the MTA can do so. And bring that I donít know when the MTA will get the money, thereís no point in acknowledging it. Perhaps the next mayor or governor is more generous in mass transit funding. Perhaps the next President will. I remember three years ago when bitter hags claimed Phase one would never open. And it did.

You're a real dumbass. Of course, on an infinite timeline, anything is possible. Literally.

What's the probability, at this point, that phase 3 and phase 4 (which are more complicated than 1 and 2) will be built before 2050?

Furthermore, if you belive that this mainly has to do with money than you're truly a world class dummy.

What was the probably that Phase would be be built at all in the next 50 years in 1979? None, there was the white flight era and during the politics of 1979 mass transit expansion was not a priority in a city FALLING part.

It's ridiculous to GAGE phases 3-4 changes of happening by 2050. Because if NYC Democrats were to sell out illegal immigrants (not impossible) and give Trump some sort of deal Trump himself has offered much greater funding for the MTA.

In short funding for them COULD happen tomorrow. It could happen in another 20 years. It could happen depending on the next mayor or governor.

In politics people don't discuss for the PROBABILITY of something. They push and the fight for what they want to happen. Those people wanting crackdowns on illegal immigrants to a big degree got it under Trump. All it took was ONE ELECTION and the RIGHT candidate.

Looks like you are a real dumbass. What was the probability that 3 stops would be built in 50 years? I'd say very high. What's the probability that phase 2 will be built within 50 years? I'd say high.

Phases 3 and 4? Virtually zero chance within the next 50 years.

Even your Trump. Example. Is poor. All of that is theater. Do you really think there are significantly less illegals in the states now than before Trump? If this was legit, they could round up entire neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens.

Things don't change on a dime even with a drastic change in politics. Do you think a certain politician will enter office and all of a sudden the entire corrupt state and city gov and construction industry will change overnight?

The main reason that the SAS project is a disaster is that our subway building process is third world aka rife with corruption.

50 years is a long cycle. Our building process is rife with corruption, but there's also a chance of some combination of that being tamped down on OR things being built despite that corruption OR a drastic material and engineering cost reduction for things like tunnel boring and excavation.

I think the off-chance that we come to our senses and build a commuter rail spine line going from Grand Central to downtown and over the East River to connect to Atlantic Terminal for through-running might obviate or temporarily pushback phase 3 and 4, but that's still a positive outcome.

I don’t really care what someone anonymous person on the internet says is the probability of anything to be frank. Now go continue your game of mental masturbation, abs perhaps your literal one. You’re just cranky due to no release. Find a booth in a porn store.

Either that or you have serious mental health issues to get uncontrollably angry over whenever the MTA builds the Second Avenue Subway. Calling me names won’t make me agree with you and it won’t make your prediction fact as that will be determined by politicians and the politics of the time.
