A reader wrote to KCC today, distressed that President Barack Obama‘s EPA chief is up to her old shenanigans:

Lisa Jackson is up to her partisan tricks again – she’s accusing Republicans of ‘lies and propaganda’ – which is funny, because economic studies have shown that North Carolina stands to lose 47,000 jobs and electrical rates would rise as much as 12.7%. 

AND when the EPA does create a job, it’s at the expense of four regular jobs. A study found that EPA rules would create 55,000 jobs but other sectors would lose 238,000 jobs (divide them and you get 4 jobs lost for every 1 job created).

Lisa Jackson doesn’t want to admit that her EPA policies are actually job killers and that it would raise costs on NC families and businesses. 

The Raleigh News and Observer reported

In a speech at Duke University, Jackson argued that EPA policies conservatives and Republicans in Washington are spreading disinformation in a bid to roll back this country’s environmental protections and to hobble the agency.

However, the paper concluded that Jackson’s speech at Duke is part of a broader counter-attack by regulators who are facing intense criticism from conservative critics during the nation’s worst economic downturn since World War II.

Jackson has been in trouble with the Obama administration before, for going too far in attacks on conservatives. In fact, she nearly had to step down from her high post.

Listen to her entire speech, in the  video below.
