The Jobs for Energy Security Act: What @BarackObama 's Jobs Plan Should Look Like #jobs

The Jobs for Energy Security Act: What @BarackObama 's Jobs Plan Should Look Like #jobs

Such a works program, alas, hasn't been politically feasible since FDR entered office with political capital to burn. With Obama's deflating approval rating, and steep opposition from a galvanized GOP, this notion -- and sadly, any downscaled iteration of it -- is infeasible to say the least. So the major plank of JESA would be gutted before the bill even hit the table -- kinda like the public option was punted from health care reform before Congress even got ahold of it. But if Obama were to announce something like the above, he'd at least look like he was making a heroic effort to create tons of jobs in a popular sector (or he'd be called a socialist all over again. But maybe, just maybe, folks are getting desperate enough for jobs that they've tired of all the red scare tactics ... Nah!)
