Quotation for Today: Wrongheaded Republican Economic Policies Harm Nation

The quotation for today, on the other side of the break, highlights the fact that the United States  --  mainly due to wrongheaded Republican economic policies over the past 30-plus years  --  has fallen far behind other first- and second-world nations in investing in its infrastructure, manufacturing, education, job skills and alternative energy.

“Without timely action by government on a large scale, solutions will continue to elude us as a nation.”
Richard Trumka 
Richard Trumka, president of the A.F.L.-C.I.O., is a member of President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
