Oh, I know, Erik! Although I’ve never been there, I understand that the countries of Europe have outstanding rail system, and I am deeply envious! Obama wanted to encourage the development of high-speed rail systems and set up a matching funds program for certain states to develop such programs. My short-sighted, Obama-hating governor turned down 2.4 billion dollars of federal funds for such a rail system that would also have generated 60,000 jobs. Unbelievably stupid.
