More than 90% of these jobs will be in the private sector.
Jobs rebuilding our roads and bridges constructing wind turbines and solar panels laying broadband.
And expanding mass transit.
Not a chance.

Million hours of paperwork.
Each year for Americans to comply -- For -- care not a chance not only will you not be able to keep your doctor you may have no doctor at all.

I don't expect the second to be far off that mark.
