“This is going to be slow moving money because it was so complex, it’s very reminiscent of Mr. Obama’s stimulus where he for example would give money for green buildings, unfortunately the money was generous enough that people put aside buildings they were putting up, to start planning green buildings which slowed construction and then there was Solyndra and those high-speed rails to nowhere,” said Morici.

He went on to break down the good and bad aspects of the bill.
