Obama called for $60 billion investment in infrastructure today in Wisky.
In a speech today at the General Motors assembly plant in Janesville, Wis., Democratic presidential contender Sen. Barack Obama will call for the creation of a "National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank" that would invest $60 billion over 10 years in highways, technology and other projects. It would be an effort, Obama will say, to "rebuild America" and create 2 million jobs in the process.A no brainer, really, for both economic and environmental reasons. I've been really confused why none of the front-runners have put out a program like Dodd's in Congress, especially Clinton, who received considerable praise for both her plans on healthcare and global warming.
