Economic Boost

File this one under job creator.  I believe one of the goals of Congress in its next session should be to evaluate our infrastructure and develop at least a 5 year (or better yet, 10 year) plan.  We could reconsider building new interstates and instead look at how different mass transit could relieve congestion.  Instead of approving more drilling, we could incentivize green energy much the way Germany has: require utilities to pay back at 1.5 times the rate for homeowner generated energy from renewable sources unless the utility is already providing renewable energy.

So...  To help Congress and POTUS out, here's a helpful chart detailing how our money may be best spent if we want to help the economy and put people back to work.
