Our government has a long history of creating jobs and entire industries. In the last 50 years, the United States has created several million jobs. The Space program in the 60's spun off thousands of new industries. The internet itself was the creation of government, not big business; and as a result hundreds of thousands of jobs have been created in just the last 10 years. President Obama is right when he wants us to take on Energy Independence. With the governments help, entire new industries will be created along with thousands of new jobs in the private sector. Big solutions require big investments. We did so in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. Then we stopped. It's time we get back on track and get America working again.
