Highways are a basic state and local responsibility. I hit a fine New Jersey pothole last weekend -- fortunately with a 16" wheel so nothing bent. I have my doubts about a state that decides to open cloning laboratories when they can't figure out how to perform basic services -- like filling the potholes on the state highways.

Maybe Massachusetts could fill the potholes with all the taxes they collect.
