Robert Reich To Obama: Bring Back The WPA

ROBERT REICH: "If he can't get through to Congress, that's okay, just show that he has some proposals. You know, exempting the first $20,000 of payroll, or a WPA for the long-term unemployed. Or changing the bankruptcy rules so people can declare their private homes in bankruptcy to give them more leverage with the banks who are stalling on renegotiating a lot of home loans."

The Work Projects Administration (WPA), a New Deal program, was used under FDR's administration to put the unskilled unemployed to work building infrastructure.
