With proposals reminiscent of FDR’s New Deal, Barack Obama used this week’s Democratic radio address to introduce his economic plan for America:
“President-elect Barack Obama promoted an economic plan Saturday he said would provide 2.5 million jobs by rebuilding roads and bridges and modernizing schools while developing alternative energy sources and more efficient cars.
“These aren’t just steps to pull ourselves out of this immediate crisis. These are the long-term investments in our economic future that have been ignored for far too long,” Obama said in the weekly Democratic radio address.”
This is good news for people who want jobs operating heavy equipment, hanging drywall, and installing computer cable. It may also be good news for T. Boone Pickens’ wind farm and moped manufacturers.
