Seeing that a damn is about to bust open, flooding various communities in California because of government cut backs and neglect, should the Federal government give California money for their fabulous new rail system?
High speed rail seems like a good idea for an infrastructure project given the medium distances between west coast cities (too far for conventional rail but not so far that flying is absolutely necessary). Of course, if the project was mismanaged or misrepresented, that's another story.
The general idea of punishing a state because it votes for the wrong candidate that underlies your and Breitbart's facially neutral statements, is reprehensible. We're still one country. The people of California would rush to help the people of Mississippi if they were in danger and vice versa.
