Obama is calling for an additional $50 billion to be spent on infrastructure, a national high-speed rail line, and some sort of regulated earmark program, all of which will be paid for by a tax on energy companies.
This will not only create jobs immediately, it's also going to make our economy hum in the long-run...It's a plan that history tells us can and should attract bipartisan support.
