"Look at those graders, rollers and the machines that lay the asphalt. See those logos on the doors? Those logos are for private construction firms. Those workers in yellow vests?

Yeah, they're private businesses...paid by the GOVERNMENT. These are known as "public projects". What, Neal, did you think when we talk about "government jobs" we mean Government BRICKLAYERS? Are you aware that Northrup Grumman privately builds those Gubmint jets? Are conservatives really that shocked that a government program means private business get hired?

They print it. Borrow it from the FED and then tax us to cover the debt.

Correct. And to paraphrase Adam Smith from the Wealth of Nations, "The true value of currency is the amount of labor, talent and experience it can purchase relative to its' denomination." That holds to fiat currency or actual commodity or real estate.
