Walker wins, Wisconsin loses

[img_assist|nid=18174|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=300|height=219]It appears to be final - the high-speed rail link from Milwaukee to Madison is dead.  The jobs are dead. Improved transporation in Wisconsin is dead.  Reports are that the Transportation Department has agreed .  Apparently there has been a little dickering so that Wisconsin won't have to pay back at least some of the money that has already been spent - but on the other hand we aren't going to receive some of the money that is committed to be spent whether the Madison-Milwaukee link happened or not.

Get used to the above headline.  Walker's commitment to ideology over practicality seems to be committing him to killing the middle class in the state, killing the unions, and making the state a haven for nobody but the rich.  And we as a state voted for the new governor and his don't-look-past-the-next-election point of view.
