Blowing In The Wind

Taxpayer money and JOBS!


A recent lengthy report by Reuters confirms what many conservatives have long known: President Obama's promise to create millions of so-called "green jobs" has been a colossal and expensive failure.
1)  Since 2009, the wind industry has lost 10,000 jobs, even as the energy capacity of wind farms has almost doubled.  By contrast, the oil and gas industry have created 75,000 jobs since Mr. Obama took office.
I would be willing to bet those 75,000 oil and gas jobs are right here in North Dakota in the Bakken oilfield.
Obama and the EPA had zero, zip, nada to do with that growth. In fact if they had their way fracking would be outlawed and this boom would be bust too, much like every thing this President has touched...
