    Why not do what the previous administrations did and work on US infrastructure? Start up a project that would employ people that connects major cities and towns with data, shipping, and people traveling.

    You could make a project to put High speed rail across the US, and couple large data and even power conduits along it. The present power system could be redone and made better.

    Basically what i see is a web of high speed rail connections running between big cities. Along the rail system you would also run your power and data lines. This would create a lot of jobs and really make the US infrastructure so much better. It is the next generation of transportation systems, and it would really be great if they started this project.

    I would like to get some money too. We just have to make those stingy Republicans give it to us.

    We'd have jobs coming out the ying-yang if only greedy and selfish American workers would learn to accept reasonable wages.

    .

    We have the money?

    Perhaps a working definition of the word "have" would be helpful here.
