  •  So where is the new WPA? (0+ / 0-)

    Anytime now Mr President. We need serious employment programs to get 30+ million back to work doing something, anything.

    $30,000 per year to each of 30 million unemployed will cost $900 BILLION.

    A surtax of $5 TRILLION on the top 1/2 of 1% to reclaim the Bush tax cut money would cover this and all the infrastructure repair we need nationwide, jumpstarting the economy back on track.

    Implement wealth redistribution to get the rest of the nation to share in the bounty the top 1% has had for the last 10 years, and we might just recover from the Republican "War of People" they have been waging for the last 40 years.
