Obama Sneers at Keystone XL Pipeline Jobs

This past weekend, President Obama sneered at the jobs the Keystone XL pipeline would create as a “blip relative to the need” -- even though his State Department projects the pipeline construction could support 42,000 jobs across the country. He is the last man standing between Americans and the jobs, economic growth, and energy security the pipeline will generate. Earlier this month, the President spoke about the need to “clear the red tape” and get such projects “up and running in a timely way.” September 19 will mark five years since TransCanada submitted its application for a permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline. The President has not met his, or the country’s, standards on approving this game-changing infrastructure project.
