How come Republicans never acknowledge that the lion's share of stimulus funds, not to mention virtually all public works projects, goes to private businesses? How come Republicans, the apostles of private enterprise and government subsidies for same, pay no mind to the contracts given to such companies to carry out public projects?
And how come Democrats don't point this out?
(TONE is not wholly in favor of this approach. We believe that the WPA should be re-established, with the original name: Works Progress Administration, and the same goals. But that's not very likely.)
