Economic growth will remain sluggish and "well below" the economy's potential for several years, according to a report issued Wednesday by the Congressional Budget Office. The non-partisan agency projected that unemployment would stay above 8 percent until 2014 as a result of the worst recession since the Great Depression. In reality, the situation is even worse. The more accurate measure of unemployment counts those who can't find work and those who have been forced to settle for part-time jobs plus those who have given up hunting for work. "You have 16 percent of our people unemployed or underemployed. That's 25 million Americans," Sen. Bernie Sanders said. His proposal: "Let's start investing in job creation."

"Everybody in the world knows that our infrastructure is crumbling. The fastest way to put people back to work is fixing roads, bridges, tunnels, public transportation, rail, water systems. The work is needed. Let's put people to work doing that," the senator said.

Sanders also called for a re-examination of failed international trade policies have seriously eroded America's manufacturing base by providing incentives to ship production and jobs to low-wage countries oversees. "Unfettered free trade agreements have been a disaster for working Americans. We've got to rethink it," Sanders said. "The demand has got to be that corporate America start investing - I know this is a radical idea - in the United States of America rather than in China."

Wow...look at this. Someone in Washington actually advocating creating jobs!!!! Rebuilding infrastructure??? THAT'S MADNESS!!!

Fixing free trade and implementing fair trade???


What we need to do is cut taxes for the wealthy and cut/end spending programs that help the middle class, elderly, and poor.

These are the ingredients to a healthy and strong economy.

I Know of a massive works project that would put every unemployed person to work. Whether directly, or through offshoots of the task.

Underground Electrical Lines

Here in eastern NC, the power goes out almost every time a storm comes.
AND it goes out for weeks everytime a hurricane comes. This Place is really PATHETIC!!! It is BEYOND comprehension that electricity is ran through power poles!!!

Could you think of an area MORE in Need of underground power than a place that routinely has power outages due to overhead power lines??
Add to it all the trees that have caused power outages.. i mean COME ON, how LAST CENTURY can this place be?? It is ridiculous to think that a place that routinely has power outages due to outdated and UGLY power lines still exists!! It really is pathetic..

Being from california, there are earthquakes, yet even though the ground moves INDERGROUND electrical lines still work. Plus the skyline looks so much more appealling without all the ugly power lines ruining the view. They ARE HIDIOUS...

Could you fathom the massive amount of people that would be employed?? What a BOOST to not only the economy, but also the infrastucture..Literally millions or people would have jobs..Construction, digging equipment, suppliers, etc...
