    Private capital, private risk... jobs for the public.
    Economic development, industrial activity, increased GDP, reduced balance of payments.
    It's all good.

    Obama... all bad.

    .

    Interesting piece. 2.1M jobs (that's the total number, direct and indirect) seems high to me, but once they are sure on the numbers, this would clearly be the kind of thing the GOP should point out loud and clear. Over and over.

    Why is it that I doubt they'll do it?

    The bigger question is without Republicans blocking everything, how many jobs would Obama have created?

    Where the hell did they get 2,000,000 jobs from fracking?

    Sounds like pure GOP tripe to me.

    Show me the numbers, direct and indirect

    The Inside Scoop Online: McDonald's Paying $15.00/hour? Yes, It's Real, But if You Move.

    McDonald's Paying $15.00/hour? Yes, It's Real, But if You Move.

    There's a boom going on in North Dakota and jobs are plentiful. The "old fashioned oil boom" is called the largest in North America in the last 40 years, according to USA TODAY. If you are looking to make $15.00 per hour as a starting position, you will have to get your bags packed and head for Williston, North Dakota.

    A person with no criminal record and a valid driver's license can get a truck driving job that pays over six figures without a problem. People are sleeping in "man camps," extra bedrooms and wherever they can, in order to take on the plentiful well paying job opportunities.

    North Dakota has its drawbacks as well. It gets extremely cold in the winter among other things.
