Barack Obama campaigned that he would create 5 million “green collar” jobs. In January, President Obama announced $2.3 billion in tax credits for a clean energy economy will create 17,000 jobs. (Hmmmm... $135,300 per job) “Building a robust clean energy sector is how we will create the jobs of the future,” he said.
Make no mistake; this government-run plan will kill more jobs than it aims to create.
There are many serious problems with the goal to create green jobs, and Europe’s unfavorable results with renewable energy should warn the United States. And cap and trade, which is sold by President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, among others as the ultimate jobs bill, is in reality the ultimate jobs destroyer.
