If the Stimulus package thats up for a vote in the senate, will create real jobs and cut out the pork, then I am all for signing this bill. If the Spec's and Drawings are on the table for these new jobs and are only waiting for the Funds. It should be signed. If the Spec's and Drawings are not on the table and ready to start people to work. Then the signing of this bill will not put people back to work for Months. Many of these projects have to have those Drawings and spec's in the hands of the Contractors, as soon as possible to start the bidding process to go forward ASAP.

Thank You,
Sr, Engineer

I would like to encourage Congress to increase funding for fighting global poverty. The Borgen Project ( has some great facts and ideas to help global poverty.
$30 billion to eliminate global poverty.
$522 billion on the U.S. defense budget.
There are 800 million people that go to sleep hungry every day, 300 million are children.

We in the USA, with help from the well coordinated efforts from our present Administration of Pres. Obama and his team, we as Seniors have long and valuable experiences to maximaize the funds appropriated by the Government,
and created well and dired needed jobs. these jobs so created will make the difference, to keep over 300 million children from going to sleep with hungers in their tommys, and 600 million workers that many are home supporters, some are even veterans we know and understand their needs.
These are horse sense needs that with good sense and experience we can help to create good and fair jobs...
