    As CT said 'did you read the bill'? If so your statement should be MUCH more broad that it is. Section 4 is the 'buy American' provision that will help USW, etal. disporportionatly. Section 5 is the 'wage rate and employment protection' provision that enforces Davis-Bacon wage rates which, as I'm sure you know, typically force employers to pay wages equal to the regional prevailing UNION wage. Since a large portion of the Jobs Act is infrastructure, school renovation and building these costs will extend much further than the one year you suppose.

    If they don't have capital why do they need schools?

    I'm leaning socialist because I think the government should own cable/power companies.

    It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that anything this President does in terms of spending money is going to his support base like Unions, and alike. Everyone else can as Maxine Waters said "Go straight to hell!"

    But couldn't the money that the school board spend the money that is collected at the local level (which most of it is) just as well? There HAS to be a bureaucracy??? This is one of the most ridiculous statements I have seen lately! It is the bureaucracy that PROMOTES government corruptions. When you add levels of 'oversight' the enable the confusion that allows corruption.

    What I'm arguing is that certain school systems may not have the tax income to support the school. Does that mean we just say, "Sorry 6 year old, have a nice illiterate life."

    Again if they don't have the economy/tax base why do they need schools? Economy/income in taxes is population driven. If the population is not sufficent to support taxes adequate for schools then they must consolidate with adjacent areas until adequate resources are available to support said school. Just because they want a 'local' school is not sufficient reason for other areas to financially support their 'want' via federal tax redistribution.
