Do you think motorists on the Dulles Toll Road would agree -- they're facing crazy toll increases due to the cost overruns.

I think it is a stretch to say that the Federal DOT has been a proud supporter of the Silver Line. When the project was conceived, the expectation was that the Fed would contribute 50% of the cost of the line. Currently, the Fed funding for Phase 2 is at ZERO. That's put the burden on the Toll Road users, and lead to pressure to build the project on the cheap. The aboveground station at the airport will make it hard to attract international travelers... the airport will be a laughingstock of the global airport community.
