    TRILLION DOLLAR INFRASTRUCTURE STIMULUS

    will jump start the economy without tax cuts/tax increase and without cuts in government programs and services. Reich Wingers want to pay down the debt with tax cuts and cuts in Government programs that do not stimulate growth but will cause more unemployment and increase debt.

    A massive infrastructure program ( large-scale public systems, services, facilities necessary for economic activity, including power and water supplies, public transportation, telecommunications, roads, and schools.) will stimulate the economy, get people off unemployment, food stamps and welfare programs, working and spending money creating more jobs. That’s Government spending. Creating jobs, stimulating the economy and more jobs created by private industries.

    Reich Wingers plan is a plan for disaster. Government cannot create private sector jobs but by repairing and building infrastructure it stimulate the economy which will stimulate creation of private sector jobs.

    Romney’s claim that he is going to create private sector jobs as president by tax cuts and all round cuts in Government spending he is a liar. The government do not create private sector jobs. Government loans like the bail outs do but not if Romney want to cut government spending.

    How many times can you propose the same failed "solutions"?

    It failed FDR and Obama.

    blah blah blah. No more play money for you, stupid Keynesians.

    But here is the nail in Obama's re-election coffin: A double-dip, which starts in Europe:

    Eurozone warned 'severe recession' looming'

    Actually, there is much to be said for a long term policy of investment in essential infrastructure. But this must be balanced by cutting programs and agencies that have outlived their usefulness (or never had much usefulness to begin with). Let's get government back to basics. Let's scrap the programs and agencies that aren't the Federal government's core business and focus on what is essential again.

    I would say Obama is better at creating jobs than Romney’s Bain. How many jobs did Romney create last year?
