Q. Who, really, is going to come up with the $700 billion?
A. American taxpayers will come up with the money, although if you are bullish on America in the long run, there is reason to hope that the tab will be less than $700 billion.
For the last 30 years, the US has turned up its business nose at manufacturing, allowing manufacturing to desert this nation for other shores, aided by generous tax incentives handed out by the government.
It will take 30 years to bring manufacturing back to this nation (if not longer) and regain our competitiveness with the rest of the world.
Therefore, anyone bullish on America right now has to have their head examined.
