The Washington Post reported that House Democrats who voted for the energy bill are worried that it will hurt them in the election because their opponents have labeled it as a job killer. It would have been worth noting that there is no reason to believe that the bill would have led to a substantial loss of jobs. If opponents of the bill are able to score political points by describing the bill as a job killer it is only because the media have done a poor job in describing its impact.
