Drill Baby Drill!!
Hell we don't need that many jobs after all those the tax cuts added.
Not just drilling but exploring and extracting our shale oil and coal resources would create enough wealth and create enough jobs to fix our bad economy. The new wealth would mean new tax revenue for the govt and new jobs for people. New jobs for people also equals more tax revenue for the govt.
Plus it would up the supply, lowering the price, and adding even more money back into the economy for items other than fuel.
Its a Win Win Win.
But, but, but... people that are in the oild industry are MEAN and EVIL and only care about making money...
God forbid we do anything that reduces our dependency on people that hate us...
Oh dude the tax cuts saved like 10,000,000 jobs!
Ok ok seriously though, how many jobs did the stimulus add? Rhetorical there are less jobs today than when it was passed.
Rumor has it that Barry hired numerous extra census takers last year.
That was a big help...
Are they still working?
Temporary govt jobs don't work nor do jobs we have to BORROW money to pay for
If they really wanted to hire a lot of people, dig those oil wells with shovels. Think of all the extra people you could hire!
last time Obama tried to expand drilling, this happened one month later.
The answer is NO, because you can't do it safely.
The oil and gas industries are competing for labor- skilled and unskilled. North Dakota operators can't find enough people willing to "work" for a living. Folks are at home on their sofas waiting for their unemployment to run out.
It's ironic that this is one of the very few (if any) sectors of the economy that is booming, yet Obama's proposed budget still contains tens of billions of dollars in punitive tax measures. He said it himself in his SOTU speech... "we need to put a million electric cars on our roads (and) pay for it by taking taxpayers' dollars back from the oil industry".
What a phenominal fail of a President.
