"Andrew Puzder, * "You don't build roads and bridges to create jobs," Puzder said to the Adam Smith Society in the February, (2016) speech. "That's 'Field of Dreams' economics" "
But at least there's people put to work to build those roads, bridges, damns, transportation, other infrastructure. And then those better roads etc, might lead to other jobs.
Can't ignore infrastructure, or it literally falls apart. And it takes a lot of labourers to build it.

If you think that's bad, you should check out what we are paying to the welfare side of the nation. Maybe we should take those people that we are paying to sit on their asses doing nothing on our dime and put them to work. You know... put in 40 hours a week and if you do it 4 times in a month then you'll get your EBT card filled and your free housing and utilities and medical expenses paid. Taxpayers are literally paying them to breath, procreate and vote Democrat. Let's get some value from them.
People in the military are still getting shot and blown up overseas right now. Perhaps we can get rid of two birds with one stone and put the welfare class into a quick boot camp and then ship them to find IED's on a road in Afghanistan.
Let's use those wasted tax dollars appropriately!!!

WOW, dental isn't part of medical there either?
That's insanity, it's DIRECTLY connected to your heart and brain. Have an infection too long in a tooth and you can suffer a stroke, heart attack or worse a brain infection.
I think it's inhumane to make humans suffer medical issues because they are poor, but it's a criminal act to make them suffer a dental issue while not calling it a medical issue.
and some people think GOD put us here? That's cold...

Yeah it's called infrastructure, something to make us not sit on our ass doing nothing.
Fix it!!! Teeth or bridges, lol.
