Obama Calls for More Federal Money for Roads, Bridges and Airports to Create Jobs
In his weekly address on Saturday, President Barack Obama called for Congress to approve more money for a new -- and vaguely defined -- program to repair roads, bridges and airports as a means of creating jobs for construction workers.
Uhhh, so WHERE’S this money COMING FROM? (That’s a rhetorical question.)
The program, Obama said, would create jobs for workers who used to build houses by “by giving loans to companies that want to repair our roads and bridges and airports.”And, as if this were something new:
The president did not explain how loaning money to a company that wants to help repair a road, bridge or airport would cause more roads, bridges or airports to be repaired and thus necessitate the hiring of more construction workers to repair them.Another Berra quote (“I really didn’t say everything I said.”) comes to mind for the following --
He also gave no details of the loan program he envisions—who would qualify for a government loan under it or on what terms the lenders would pay the taxpayers back.
However, he did call the loans one of the “commonsense steps” he is proposing to get the American economy growing again.
Obama said these “commonsense steps” will help the economy and lead America to a “brighter day.”The only “commonsense step” that will help the economy and lead America to a “brighter day” would be for this to happen:
And that has as much of a chance of happening as the proverbial snowball’s chance. Still, it makes me smile and wish... and take a trip into La-La Land.
OR, you can REALLY express your feelings!
I mean... you GOTTA do SOMETHING.
So much incompetency...
So little time to write about it all.
