What could go wrong? (underfunding rail security edition)
One day after the mass transit rail bombings in India, the U.S. Senate was asked to increase funding for rail security in this country. The majority said no.Only two Democrats voted against it, and South Dakota and Nebraska are states with understandably little interest in such funding.
The vote was 50-50, one vote shy of providing extra money to beef up security on U.S. railroads.
