Matt Pommer Talks About Rail And Consequences For Walker

The dean of the Capitol press corps gets it right.

My two cents worth - - repeated on this blog often (one example, here) - - is that Walker's decision has nothing to do with money, because the relative pittance the train would have cost the state would have come back many times in jobs, payroll taxes, reputation and development associated with the train's construction and synergies.

Walker made a decision based on the screwy righty perspectives of the talk radio hosts who created him as County Executive in 2002 and carried him to his 52% majority in the governor's race.

Electoral politics is a bad place to live ideologically.
