    Is Anyone Counting “Jobs Destroyed or Averted”?

    Is Anyone Counting “Jobs Destroyed or Averted”?

    We all know how carefully the Obama administration touts the mythical “jobs created or saved” (or is it “saved or created”?).

    We also know how many jobs have been lost since the Stimulus Plan passed (well over 2 million, even including expansion of government jobs).


    is anyone documenting how many jobs have been “destroyed or averted” as a result of Obama administration policies and decisions?

    Let’s start here, U.S. agency’s action may kill Bucyrus deal, cost 1,000 jobs:

    Up to 1,000 jobs at Bucyrus International Inc. and its suppliers could be in jeopardy as the result of a decision by the U.S. Export-Import Bank, funded by Congress, to deny several hundred million dollars in loan guarantees to a coal-fired power plant and mine in India.

    About 300 of those jobs are at the Bucyrus plant in South Milwaukee, where the company has 1,410 employees and its headquarters. The remaining jobs are spread across 13 states, including Illinois, Minnesota and Indiana.

    On Thursday, the Export-Import Bank denied financing for Reliance Power Ltd., an Indian power plant company, effectively wiping out about $600 million in coal mining equipment sales for Bucyrus, chief executive Tim Sullivan said.

    The fossil fuel project was the first to come before the government-run bank since it adopted a climate-change policy to settle a lawsuit and to meet Obama administration directives.

    Other examples?

    and again he continues his (and this regime's) fight against coal. grrrr.

    Apparently they're refusing to process permits even for near shore drilling — and people are starting to go out of business. See here. Be sure to read comment by Knut.
