What hath Christie wrought?

I know I’m not the only one upset about the news that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has killed the New Jersey-to-New York tunnel project — the ARC (Access to the Region’s Core) — as it is known. To me, this project represented a huge step forward in the rebuilding of America’s transportation infrastructure. The current tunnel beneath the Hudson was built 100 years ago; do we really need to wait any longer to build another?
