There are almost a Hummer shovel ready transportation projects already approved in Colorado.
Which are beginning to create jobs.
We are seeing shovels hit the ground make sure -- shovel ready actually means shovel ready.
Shovels will soon be moving -- And trucks will soon be poured -- break.
Where we are standing.
Well they were -- someday but it was not jobs that don't say I didn't warn.
It's -- just what are they Sutherland would this stimulus not Roddick sometimes something that smells very very different.
So what do you know the president self admitted to the New York Times that there is no such thing as -- -- -- project.
Then what indeed were -- -- Ben Stein has some ideas.
All around Coleman won't -- and -- then what must open its.
-- it's just a union promoting trick gets an electoral.
From a collection promoting -- -- Did this double promoting the shovel ready doesn't exist but public -- have never been a major way to get us out of recession -- -- There's this myth.
That high school students believe.
And they're not very good high school -- That the WPA.
And other kind of public works projects got us out of the Great Depression that's totally not true.
There they there are very very inefficient way of spending money you spend a dollar -- goes your machinery must have goes.
The unions most of got a few top guys in the -- driving berm.
You get very few jobs out of each dollar you spend on public works in the.
Why -- -- -- that then why didn't you tell your -- -- the -- times.
And just say -- -- -- times.
Look I was totally wrong I misled people or maybe -- misrepresented myself.
When I said these -- jobs are ready when now when he says there are no such -- -- what one.
Well politics is never say there are wrong there are that are extremely rarely so he's not going to be the first -- to do it.
But -- -- in a way it's just appealing the public reset the bubble look I don't know what to do I have no idea what to do -- -- an economist nobody knows what to do.
Then he doesn't really -- very convincing.
Because I've got that area pay people money to dig ditches and then tell them back up again gonna pay people money to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure which in itself is largely a myth not entirely -- largely.
Then exit make you think he's doing -- he -- he doesn't know what to do.
Nobody knows what to do.
But it's clear that construction Roddick who would you date -- ninety dollars -- -- -- hundred -- dollar an hour.
-- workers and most the money goes to -- beggars and the union benefits are not the way to do it is giving the money back the taxpayers would lower taxes or at least not raising taxes.
That's the way to go.
If you didn't.
Have tax cuts -- and it's that he was reversed so that he wanted to get some stimulus got something prime the proverbial -- what would -- president Stein had.
You would -- We'll president's Diane Wood and personal presence -- -- scary combination like -- line has.
-- a terrifying combination every -- knows him but not yet but I would have said.
Let's get give the money back to a 100%.
Of the people who can -- use it to consume not just to the union people in the construction trades give it back everybody you can consume.
And well as soon have markets -- but even that's not the problem -- The government is running such enormous deficits that we are in effect giving it a gigantic stimulus for the economy every day.
And the economy is still not reviving -- a big way.
That confidence in this president virtually mail constantly shattered by letting Lehman Brothers fail.
This president has -- does not have the gone to the biz com confidence a businessman.
They're not hiring you're scared and you don't want to hear a lot of Lehman -- felt -- -- that didn't happen is not the slide whistles that is about the Lehman Brothers fail.
I'm -- he is not not in the slightest but he has not done anything.
To make business feel more comfortable I mean it just the other day had this attack on the US chamber of commerce for those.
-- a -- idea that there are getting.
Getting foreign money.
That's just a nonsense he's made that up and yet it makes business and then abilities attack them why should these candidates go there on -- -- Possibly already getting into an excitement as you it just apparently saw our Ben Stein you would be a good -- your press conferences would be hysterical for one thing.
