Well, why not? This is not the first thing rammed down our throats by the Obama and Doyle administrations.(see ObamaCare)
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Gov. Jim Doyle on Thursday portrayed a planned Milwaukee-to-Madison high-speed rail line as an unstoppable train that Republican gubernatorial candidates can't derail.
"High-speed rail is coming to Wisconsin," LaHood said. "There's no stopping it."
BTW... Isn't Mayor Barrett just Governor Doyle Jr. with hair?
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, the leading Democrat in the governor's race, backs high-speed rail.
Good grief, Mayor Barrett, grow a spine and stand on your own two feet!
