Does Obama need to make jobs in order to end this recession in the USA?
What about making a grand railway project which will cross America from West to East? Instantly 100's of thousands of jobs would be created to make this happen.Within 3 years the project would be complete and talk about tourism then, with an east to west link taking tourists and Americans across the country using fast rail service. Each state that is connected in the project will have a renewed version of the old west being explored once again. What do you think?

sounds cool! but how many people would be able to afford taking that train? i mean, it costs about $100 just to go from philly to boston. if no one rides it.. then it doesn't make money, probably because of the recession, and then we're just digging ourselves into an even deeper hole with all the money put into it...

To get out of a recession, people need to spend more, putting more money back into the economy. As for your proposal. How much would such a project cost? It would be like going across the atlantic by boat again. The only reason people do it these days is for pleasure. Would there be demand for such "pleasure trips" as... More
