The New Deal showed us a better way. Through a combination of funding mechanisms, including higher taxes on the wealthy, New Deal policymakers used the CCC, PWA, WPA, and other work programs to create jobs & infrastructure. New hospitals, schools, roads, parks, airports, etc., began sprouting up all across the nation. After World War II, the American economy expanded along New Deal roads, across New Deal bridges, and out of New Deal airports. The political right never acknowledges this and, indeed, doesn't want you to know about it. They'll tell you "No, no, no, Ayn Rand built all that!"
So, which do you prefer? Reverse Robin Hoods, like Landon and Brownback, or New Deal policies, programs, and infrastructure that we still use today?
