Forbes is not reporting this: Forbes is reporting on a report done separately from the publication. There is a difference. The Forbes author seems to be doing a guest feature, as his credentials are listed at the end of the story. This writer is affiliated with the Heartland Institute, which just happens to take a dim view of every Obama policy. A web search points to the institute being a Libertarian think tank, funded partially by Exxon Mobil.
To say this is Forbes reporting or supporting this claim would be like Rush reading a positive report about healthcare and saying he's reporting or supporting it.
