Krugman nails regressives on their hypocrisy, again
See this recent article. Regressives have long held that government spending does not in any way create jobs. Yet they're in a big hurry to pass legislation to spend money on the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Their big rationale is that it will create jobs, so they're contradicting their usual canard about government spending not creating jobs. Furthermore, they could give a shit about creating jobs as evidenced by the jobs they failed to create by during their tenure as House majority. Plus they did the opposite with their sequester, as well as cutting 900,000 government jobs during their tenure. As everyone knows (except the idiots that voted for these lying charlatans), the real reason is payback for the giant contributions they received from the oil industry.
