Race to the Bottom

Today Streetsblog featured this Urbanophile post in response to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's decision to kill the ARC rail tunnel into Manhattan.  It's a pointed denunciation of the cut-to-the-bone (or prune-to-the-trunk) governing philosophy of this generation's Republican Party, and one quote really stood out to me:
But as I noted before, if you can’t afford your infrastructure, and you can’t afford to provide basic services, what you’re really saying is that you can’t afford to be state and are holding a slow motion going out of business sale.
Worth remembering as Election Day nears.
