There are many construction workers and laborers out of work. These people can be formed into companies and sent as disaster relief in Haiti, New Orleans and other disaster areas. They can rebuild these places and still receive unemployment compensation -- but instead, it will be called a paycheck. Put America back to work and become productive.
Unlike the fiasco with Hurricane Katrina, put people in charge of these projects and hold them personally accountable and liable for their actions. It was done before and can be done again.
Our president asked for suggestions. Well, here is one. But I do not believe anyone in Washington is listening.
