ALTHOUGH THIS BILL IS VERY INTERESTING, THERE ARE QUESTIONS RUNNING THROUGH MY HEAD AS TO THE LONG TERM LONGGEVITY OF SUCH A BILL.

Disgusting! and less than interesting! Taxpayers do not need to fund jobs. This is reckless spending by this Congress and another way to "redistribute the wealth". We are broke! This is just another way to ensure their own jobs.
