Last week, the Obama administration and the Republican-dominated House Natural Resources Committee took diametrically opposed steps regarding development of oil shale across the West. Not surprisingly, House Republicans are attaching the by-now-meaningless labels “job creator” to its bill, and “job killing,” to the Department of Interior’s action. Also not surprisingly, House Republicans’ views are not tethered to reality.
