Multi Billion Dollar Jobs Program Being Prepared By Democrats In Congress

It is good news to hear that the Democrats on Capitol Hill are planning a multi billion dollar jobs program to deal with the severity of the Great Recession we are suffering through.

With unemployment over ten percent, and about 17 percent if one includes part time workers and those who have stopped looking and no longer get unemployment benefits, it is essential that Congress and the Obama Administration create a program, as suggested in an earlier blog entry–a CCC, PWA, WPA type jobs initiative.

This is important not only for the obvious reason, to promote more employment, but also for the long term survival of the Democratic majority in both houses of Congress and the future of the Obama Presidency.

There will be, of course, heated debate over deficit spending, and it certainly is a problem, but right now the first priority is JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!
