Barack Obama: Unemployment Creates Employment

by J.S. Kline

In the doublespeak that has become a staple of the administration (regime?), the president today claimed that an extension of unemployment benefits would result in the creation of more jobs than the proposed Keystone Pipeline project.

President Obama:

As Obama called for passage of those bills, he also responded to a recent Republican push to require him to approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada. “However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline,” he said, “they’re going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance.”


Right on.

The only things “created” by an extension of unemployment benefits are potential Obama voters.
