So what? That's python deciding to print strings using single-quotes. 
That has nothing to do with JSON.

The important part is this:

 >>> json.dumps(json.loads('{"test":"test"}'))
'{"test": "test"}'

It's not hard, but it's not standard-conform.

Most browsers even accept something like this:

{foo : "bar"}

But all of this is not JSON.
