Do the math

Tweet [1]

From the AP [2] (HT: Drudge [3]):

The Federal Highway Administration has estimated that every $1 billion
the federal government spends on infrastructure projects translates to
35,000 jobs. Collins put the total infrastructure spending — including
highways, mass transit,
environmental cleanups and broadband facilities — at $150 billion. Do
the math and that translates into more than 5 million jobs, based on
the highway administration's assumptions.

Or do the economics [4].
