Kucinich Points to Roosevelt Recovery Precedents

Aug. 20, 2007 (EIRNS)—In a discussion with the editorial board of the Boston Globe on Aug. 17, Democratic Presidential pre-candidate Dennis Kucinich promised to create a new version of Franklin Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration (WPA), putting Americans to work building infrastructure. Kucinich put the idea forward as a serious response to the financial and economic collapse-crisis now coming on.

In Dover, Maine, Kucinich said, "There are trillions of infrastructure needs," according to Seacoastonline.com. "By rebuilding schools, roads and bridges, for starters, Americans will have ample job opportunities at good wages."
