    Obama is again calling for an "Infrastructure Bank" Does he forget he no longer has a media monopoly?

    Will this bank invest in Shovel ready projects?

    Will the Bank Follow the model of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

    Fannie Mae Posts $8.7 Billion Loss, Requests More Fed Aid

    What could possibly go wrong?

    The never-ending road project: 9 years to rehab 8 miles of I-78
    March 24, 2013 - It took two years to build the original 118-mile New Jersey Turnpike. It took just over a year to build the 102-story Empire State Building. So why is it taking contractors nine years to reconstruct an 8-mile stretch of Interstate 78?

    I've been on local shovel ready jobs, most of the funds were squandered by fiscally irresponsible folks who just happened to get their hand in the fed cookie jar

    Most of the construction labor was Mexican, or questionable status

    Few , if any, permanent jobs were created

    But the gov came and stumped, so the state authorites all played lame duck

    biggest all round waste i ever saw
