Upgrading and greening of the electrical grids jobs

The U.S. has lost 10 million jobs since 2007, and unemployment is expected to remain around 10% for the rest of this year. President Obama's proposed, and acted upon, stimulus for small businesses, etc., which is only about one eighth of what was spent on the banks. It is too little and, by the time the money is spent, it will be too late to help many Americans.   That's why upgrading and greening of the electrical grids jobs are needed now, not only is it securing our electrical systems, a jobs program, realizing environmental progress, it will also be a free stimulus program; because the money saved on everyone's electrical bills will be spent, immediately.  During the Great Depression, it took only 90 days to get 3 million people employed in public works projects. Today, a similar direct investment in American workers would stimulate the economy, increase tax revenues, and renew the country's infrastructure, etc.;  right away.  The administration and Congress should act now to put people back to work.   reality
