France made high speed trains work.
Can we make high speed trains work?

We had a chance to do this a few years ago in Wisconsin. High-speed rail was to have been installed between Madison and Milwaukee and also between Milwaukee and Chicago with a transportation Federal Grant. A Spanish firm even prepared to build the locomotives and cars for the routes. Republican Governor Scott "-------" Walker cancelled EVERYTHING!
Walker also came up with the infamous Act 10, which trashed public school teacher's unions. Teachers early-retired in droves, and there are presently hundreds of unfilled and likely unfillable teaching posts in Wisconsin today. If you are willing to teach for low wages, please apply. There may even be a quickie route to certification if you're STEM-qualified!
Welcome to Wisconsin, suckers!
