    historic lows right now. Even if we didn't have pressing needs, like an outdated water system in much of the country, it would be fiscally worse, and dumb not to invest in infrastructure projects right now.

    For our idiotic conservative friends:

    $1 billion project @ 1.4% < $1 billion project @ 5+%

    Plus we get to have the jobs and growth associated with any project for X years before the morons wait for a disaster and then overspend on infrastructure.

    Of course in their minds the people building the roads, water system, etc., are not working "real jobs" because they are working for the government instead of standing at a door saying hello to people as they enter Wal-Mart.
