Actually saw something hopeful on MSM tonight.
Advertisements [?]
It was an ABC story about a house built in Montana with 100% American made products. The guy that did it said that if builders just upped their Made in the USA stuff by 5% it would create 220,000 jobs. ABC had an economic group confirm the numbers.

The story said many builders were using the list of suppliers from the Montana builder to up their use of American products.

Let's go one better. Instead of lots of hoops to jump through and councils to meet to plan fore jobs, how about a bill giving tax breaks for houses built with a certain percentage of American Made products. How could the repukes vote agains that. Of course I would like to pay for it with a tax on foreign products used instead, but we all know that the t word gives repukes the hives.

I can't find a video of the segment, which was on tonight's news" but here is a link to part of the story.
