Why did experts say the American Jobs Act would create more jobs than the Keystone Pipeline?

Who are these experts? Are they the same ones who said the unemployment would never go over 8% if Obama got his stimulus package? Are they the same ones who said your insurance won't go up 'one thin dime' with Obama care. Mine will have gone up 250% in 2014? In fact, can you name anything that has come true that Obama... More
