No More Excuses: Time For Maloney And Obama To Build The Keystone Pipeline
Americans Are Looking For Sean Patrick Maloney And President Obama To Stand Up For Jobs
WASHINGTON –All across the country, Americans are looking for polices that promote job growth and strengthen the middle class. That’s why the National Republican Congressional Committee is calling on Sean Patrick Maloney and President Obama to—once and for all—approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
Time’s up. Obama and Maloney’s liberal friends already kowtowed to their environmentalist allies once. It’s time they finally take initiative and approve a plan to create thousands of American jobs.
“Sean Patrick Maloney and President Obama have run out of excuses,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “If they are serious about creating jobs, they need to stand up to their radical environmentalist friends and support the Keystone XL pipeline.”
Over One Year Ago, President Obama Rejected The Plan To Build The Keystone XL Pipeline. “President Barack Obama on Wednesday rejected a Canadian company’s plan to build a U.S.-spanning, 1,700-mile pipeline to carry oil across six U.S. states to Texas refineries, raising the stakes on a bitter election year fight with Republicans.” (“Obama Rejects Keystone Oil Pipeline,” NBC News, 1/18/12)
Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman Approved A Revised Plan To Build The Pipeline—Leaving The Final Decision To The Obama Administration. “Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman notified the Obama administration Tuesday that he has approved the controversial Keystone XL Pipeline to traverse his state, marking a significant step toward reviving the project after President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sidelined it.” (“Nebraska Governor Approves Revised Keystone Pipeline Route, Fox News, 1/22/13)
