    This is sad but, IMO, typical of big city politicians. Their mindset seems to me to be to put targeted people (voting blocks) to work quickly without regard to the end product.


    I really liked the comment on having your family traveling over a bridge built by unskilled workers.


    Back in the 1960's and 1970's, many Central and South American countries engaged in massive foreign borrowings to fund projects to stimulate their economies. Much of this money was siphoned off to the private accounts of the people in power and/or wasted on poorly managed construction projects that did little to help those countries. When the bonds came due, some countries went into default and some of our largest banks were technically bankrupt. Many of these countries still have struggling economies.


    IMO, if you really want to put people to work, provide massive grants and tax cuts to small business. Historically, small businesses creates many, many jobs. Their wages may not be comparable to big business but at least it is work. Also, some small businesses grow into big businesses.


    Unfairly taxing the highest producers of income and operating a centrally managed economy does not work.


    Maybe Ayn Rand and George Orwell were clairvoyants.


    One of the underlying themes of Atlas Shrugged was that inventors (like John Gault) would not provide their inventions to a world that penalized their innovations and rewarded those who did nothing. Their goal was to stop the motor of the world by denying it the fuel of new ideas and innovations that the motor needed to run.

    Long term unemployed minorities or white welfare rats are so lazy most would not take a job doing "nothing" for $50,000 a year. Many would work for a few days to get their workmans comp, or sexual harrasment claim going.

    They say they want the work completed fast? Good luck with that gene pool.


    A job site manned with "tradsmen" like that would be more screwed up than a crackheads checkbook.

    It seems like these Government programs still use the trickle down affect. The minority gets the majority and the spillover then trickles down to the majority. What is ironic is ultimately the majority pays for it. That's why it's better to give you a tax break versus these stupid government wasteful programs. BT-100dc

    These politicians are so far out of touch! they have never filled a tank of gas and they dont feel the bite that they inflict. I can only hope that the bridge work is the route that they take to work! OH YA, THEY DONT SHOW UP FOR WORK!!!!!! Bob S
