“…the problem is for us to spend a 150 Billion dollars (giving it to the American public to stimulate the economy) right now we’re probably going to be borrowing it from China. And when we turn around and give it in the form of rebate checks what many people are going to do is go out and buy products imported from China. So I don’t know whose economy we are going to actually stimulate?

“…if we’re determined to spend 150 billion dollars (let’s spend it on) building roads, bridges, airports and this might do more for the economy, for the environment and this will put Americans to work, using American steal and concrete. Every time 1 billion dollars is spent on American infrastructure 47,500 jobs are created.”
