“The Cracks in the Nation’s Foundation” (TIMES, 12/9/12)


The USA has “faltering sewage plants,” that constitute a serious health risk, as well as “70,000 structurally deficient bridges” and “4000 dams in need of repair.” And NYC’s subway system needs $4.8 billion just to recover from Hurricane Sandy.”

So much needs to be done but there does not seem to be the will to do it!

NOW, after Obama’s clear victory on November 6, 2012, is the best time for him to implement a massive federal jobs program. It would go a long way to repairing the nation’s infrastructure and it would lower the unemployment rate as well.
