I guess no one has pointed out to you that government is the largest creator of jobs in the U.S., and I'm not talking about government jobs. Go to any shipyard where U.S. Navy ships are maintained and you'll find an Army of workers employed by private industry repairing and maintaining those ships.

You're buying the conservative nonsense that government does not create jobs. Another example, the U.S. government owns more vehicles than any other entity on the planet, yet the government does not produce a single vehicle. They are all purchased, or leased from private corporations.

How about using commonsense. Look around you, damn near everything you see are items and products, and services purchased by government from private industry.

Seventy percent of American voters support building the Keystone XL Pipeline--three points up from last year thanks to an uptick in support from Democrats. The State Department's environmental impact statement released earlier this month concluded that there would be "no significant impacts." And in addition to the state of Nebraska, both the House and Democrat-controlled Senate have essentially given its construction a green light. The last remaining obstacle? The Obama administration, of course. It has been more than 1,600 days since the initial permits were filed to build the pipeline and the GOP is turning up the heat...
