Barack Obama announced the creation of a massive new public-works program aimed at updating the nation's infrastructure while creating millions of jobs. This comes as no surprise, as Obama and Joe Biden talked constantly about resurrecting the least-successful elements of FDR's New Deal as an answer to the current economic crisis. The new administration won't just contain itself to roads, either:

A "hot air" source once again.
Boulder (renamed Hoover dam once the Repubs got back into office) was only one public works program that put dollars in the pockets of American workers which spent those dollars and the economy moved slowly forward.
Seperate and numerous studies have pointed out the sad state of affairs of our infrastructure from sewage plants, water plants, bridges and national highways to public buildings.
These are payroll dollars waiting for workers not wasted "bailouts" (read non-recourse loans) to the banking industry and other traditional Republican strongholds.
