Linda Hirshman writes for the New York Times, “Barack Obama has announced a plan to stimulate the economy by creating 2.5 million jobs over the next two years. Mr. Obama compared his infrastructure plan to the Eisenhower-era construction of the Interstate System of highways. It brings back the Eisenhower era in a less appealing way as well: there are almost no women on this road to recovery.”
