  •  This COULD have happened 2 yrs ago. Now, (0+ / 0-)

    the Republican House will categorically refuse to appropriate a penny for hi-speed rail, aided and abetted by sell-out BD Dems who get lots of oil money. And every Republican governor will be sure to block it, just as idiot Chris Christy recently canceled a huge public works project that would have created a greatly new Hudson River tunnel -- for trains!

    Heck, here in N.M., our new Tea Bag guv, Susana Martinez, will likely try to shut down the new, very popular rail system already in operation (a very popular success) along the Rio Grande corridor -- the "Rail Runner", because it requires some state money to keep it in operation, and because of course, it was brought into being while a Democrat was governor.
