Question Of The Week, 11/9/08

Good morning. I've been a little surprised by some the responses I've gotten when I talked with a few friends about the subject of this weeks question. A trip from just about anywhere in the United States to the local grocery store will show you our roads and bridges are deteriorating. If you were to reach over and pick up your local paper right now chances are you'd find something about the rising unemployment rate. We're facing a lot of problems and most if not all of them involve the economy. There has been a lot of talk about a new stimulus package. I don't think there is anyone that really believes the tax payers will be getting another check. This weeks Question Of The Week is would you support or oppose a stimulus package that brought us a new version of the WPA (Work Projects Administration)to put the unemployed back to work repairing our roads and bridges?

I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Tuesday morning.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Some schools of thought believe that the WPA actually extended the recession into the Great Depression. In theory, a project to repair roads and bridges sounds good in theory, but I'm not sure that it would bring economic recovery.

Thank you for stopping by to answer this weeks question. "This weeks Question Of The Week is would you support or oppose a stimulus package that brought us a new version of the WPA (Work Projects Administration)to put the unemployed back to work repairing our roads and bridges?" Oppose. I feel this would be one more step towards socialism.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

FDR was the reddest President we've had in the Oval Office.

BTW, the TVA project brought electricity to some backwoods areas and quite cheaply -- at first. Everybody went to electric for everything, and the price per kw hour went through the roof when the bill for the project came due.
