Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) posted this on his Facebook:
A majority of Americans and a bipartisan majority of Congress agreed that the Keystone pipeline will create jobs and improve our energy security. It is disappointing yet predictable that President Obama has again put his extreme liberal agenda ahead of good policy.
The administration says that Congress rushed their decision passing legislation to approve the pipeline. It has been 2,340 days since the administration began their environmental review. In the meantime Apple has developed and released five new iPhones, Lebron James has gone from Cleveland to win two championships in Miami then returned to Cleveland, and the San Francisco Giants have won the World Series three times.
What we do know is that the Keystone pipeline would create more than 40,000 jobs and contribute to our energy security. After six years it is time to make a decision.
As always, actions speak louder than words, and despite rhetoric from President Obama on bipartisanship and compromise, his actions show that the liberal special interests of environmental extremists are his priority, not creating jobs or protecting our energy security.
