For 10 years we have been borrowing on equity and rebuilding our homes and businesses. Now we all have new kitchens but there's no equity left- all those jobs are drying up and the debt remains to be paid. Was that a false economy? Is the stimulus the same thing?
How sustainable is it to continue to prop up an economy that in a year might be facing the same problems. Survival is good but what about the long term?
Oregon and the US in general needs to get back to inventing, designing and creating, saleable and sustainable products. Go ahead with the infrastructure but put some of the money toward securing production jobs that will last. Casey in NE Portland
