Bring Back the WPA

Bring back the WPA!!!! In the 30's when times were tough,money was tight and jobs were scarce FDR created the WPA which put people to work in meaningful jobs. In one small corner of our state many of the highways, that are still in use today, were built by the was Timberline Lodge in the Mt. Hood National Park. Why can't the government recreate such a program today? It would provide much needed jobs and our country would benefit from the revamping of its infrastructure.
