16. Programs need money. Money comes from Congress.

It's that simple. Mr Obama could write an Executive Order tomorrow that calls for a billion infrastructure projects, but if Congress won't disgorge, the program is a dead letter.

I'm no knee-jerk supporter of Mr Obama (the opposite, if anything), but in this case I think he's doing all he can do: continue to call attention to the problem, and hope somebody's listening.
