Obama's public works fix

"President-elect Barack Obama said Saturday that he wants to revive the economy and create jobs by upgrading roads, schools and energy efficiency in a public-works program whose scale has been unseen since construction of the interstate highway system in the 1950s.

He offered no price estimate for the grand plan, how the money might be divided or the effect on the country's financial health at a time of burgeoning deficits."

He offered no price estimate for the grand plan, how the money might be divided or the effect on the country's financial health at a time of burgeoning deficits?

The "plan" specifies neither how much nor what.

It's still only pretty speeches.

I'm all for infastructure projects... but what it is about progressives that they just can't get that a public project / job is not the same / as good as a private job?

And what's with the "secret plan"? Isn't the lesson of the bailouts so far that "secret plans" don't work, and more public input is needed?

I think, in general, this is a good thing, parts of our infrastructure are not in good shape, and unemployment is expected to soar over the next year or two.

Of course, the devil could be in the details...

But when I think of the various worse things Obama could be proposing instead of this, it's hard for me to get worked up about it. :)
