Twenty Thousand Jobs Is Really Not That Many Jobs
Specialy when they are not in your district.
That is a gross understatement.
Lets talk about the multiplier and spinoffs. What about all the people who indirectly contribute to the pipeline? I wonder what the complete budget is and what part is provided by America and Americans.... LEts see; 7 billion projected cost for 20,000 jobs? That’s pretty substantial./s Now, if someone bought some steel and welding rod, it would all be different!
Now, lets talk about energy pricing and security.
How did this bubblehead get there?
In the grand scheme of things, no, 20K jobs isn't that many. But what of the ohter ancillary jobs that would be created in the pizza joints, bars and other hospitality industry to "service" those workers.
What of the lower oil price in the US which in turn lowers gasoline/diesel prices, which lowers everyone's costs for food and gives those who still have jobs, more money to spend on discretionary things which creates even more jobs?
What a ditz
Hey, they were just working class guys in flyover country. Who cares about those guys? They probably weren’t going to vote for Obama anyway.
