you can't send these jobs overseas

it's high time the republicans stopped blocking legislation that would put americans back to work. while unemployment is higher than when the stimulus bill was passed, a recent CBO report estimates that the stimulus kept the unemployment rate down by 1.8 percent and was behind an increase of 1.4 million jobs this year. the proposed infrastructure legislation would create even more jobs where they are most desperately needed: among the working class and middle class. this is a good bill. this is a bill in the mold of the wpa and eisenhower's highway bill.

Maybe republicans oppose this spending because they can't send the jobs overseas. Heavens forbid that we create well paying jobs here.

They'll be in favor of spending those billions of dollars to improve infrastructure once they've given away and made private said infrastructure.

In a perfect world, this November would be our opportunity to outsource the more difficult Republicans.

you can't outsource but you can import foreign cheap labor. see the "rebuilding" of New Orleans.
