So, I don't know a great deal about these public works things they've done in the past. Is it a 'quick' enough fix? Who will it employ? How does something like this help?

When FDR did the public works thing back in the thirties it was a lot easier to get passed. Now there are so many unions, environmental impact reports, special interests, etc. that many are wondering how much he can actually make happen.

LOL, Tree. It looks like we're going to have to ask someone who was around in the 1930s to answer this question.

I'm thinking this may have landed in the wrong thread.

It was one of the projects that caused FDR to be called a Communist.

Thanks, Zel. It certainly did.

But no one would throw around such accusations in this day and age.

The program built many public buildings, projects and roads and operated large arts, drama, media and literacy projects.
Woo, that's sounding good already, lol. All it said in the paper was something about infrastucture type things (building roads and bridges) and I thought, well, that's not going to employ all that many people and limits the type of experience and skills required. (Like me, I've never built a road, lol)
But I didn't know about the arts and stuff - that is awesome! I realize times are different and we couldn't necessarily count on that, but that would be great if any such proposal included something that would give a boost to the arts. They've been on the back burner for far too long now, imo.
Cool, I guess a wiki entry is a good start! Thanks.
