The facts should slow down high speed rail

HighspeedrailA few days ago, Moody’s lowered the State of Illinois’ bond rating to the lowest in the country .

Standard and Poor’s has our outlook just one step above another state that has been in defacto control of the Democrats for years – the State of California (No, please don’t tell me Schwarzenegger was anything close to a Republican).  In doing so, Moody’s cited “weak management practices” and a recent legislative session that “took no steps to implement lasting solutions”.

The State of Illinois shares one other commonality with the State of California – a love of High Speed Rail.
