Jobs, Jobs and More Jobs


“By most reasonable estimates we will lose jobs .. Look at Spain (for every job they gained, they lost over 2)”

— Nathan Deal (R, GA), 6/26/09


The so-called “study” that Congressman Deal refers to has been widely debunked. Even that crazy lefty rag, the Wall Street Journal, did a story outlining the numerous ways in which it was flawed.

No big surprise there, though. Turns out the author of the study comes from a group funded by ExxonMobil.

The preponderance of economic impact studies point, instead, to the great potential for economic growth and job creation by shifting to a clean energy economy. That’s why this bill is widely supported by both labor and business groups. They know that if all you ever do is all you’ve ever done, all you’ll ever get is all you ever got.

    OK, I believe that we will have more jobs. Although we need to realize that some of these jobs will be in China — although SunTech does plan to build a plant in the USA.

    The question is: who will pay the wages of all of these new workers?

    So you defend this because you think change is better than staying the way we are concerning the way we process energy in this country?
    And what country exactly has proven this fact?
    How many countries have actually proven this fact?
    Again, you guys must think the American people are stupid or something!
    I watch a lot of shows about new environmental measures and not once have I heard that it has directly made the economy in any nation doing this better than it was before doing this!
    Telling me that some study shows the POTENTIAL of better economic stability after doing this proves nothing to me.
    Not one country as far as I have seen has actually made its economy any better than it was by changing its form of generating power.
    What countries were studied, and which countries were found to have a considerable betterment to their economy directly due to this type of energy generating change?
    Your mocking seems more and more like a foul mouthed liberal.
