Milwaukee Light Rail ... It's Baa-aack


Tom Barrett is again pushing light rail. He calls it a "street car on rails," but a rose by any other name...

Barrett plans to tap the $90+ million in federal tax dollars that liberals have been trying to get their grubby fingers on for a light rail line for over a decade, to build this $100+ million light rail line that will drive in a circle around part of downtown. This is the route that $100 million will get you, not much, is it? Aren't there already busses that run on all of those streets... and all of the streets in between?
