    to come out about being competitive in investments in education, green technologies, high speed rail, infrastructure besides expressways, it might mean something beneficial to the US in the long run.

    But to date, it would appear that he has abandoned those efforts after the initial stimulus and now he's joined the runaway freight train off the broken tressle which collapsed due to insufficient investment in infrastructure.  Its a race to the bottom that will end in a crash, but no one seems to be worried.  Kind of like the old joke I heard as a kid about a guy that jumps off a 50 story building and can be heard as he passes the windows on each floor, 'so far, so good'.  Unfortunately, it ends badly.
