  •  Reminder--90+% of the pipeline jobs=gone in 2 yrs (8+ / 0-)
    "...The Keystone pipeline — which is part of our jobs plan...."
    Once the line is built, there won't be many permanent jobs to operate and maintain it.

    This is mostly short-term work at best.

    •  Well, 90% never get created (3+ / 0-)

      Every independent analysis we've seen is that their jobs numbers are bogus to begin with, which isn't uncommon. So take the "filthy liar" tax off the top to get it back into the real world.

      Then 90% of them leave after two years.

      But the GOP still complains about unemployment insurance and infrastructure stimulus only creating temporary jobs. Maybe we should convince Boehner to buy stock in construction contractors instead of pipeline companies.
