The Keystone Pipeline endeavor has been in the works for three years, has passed approval of the EPA,is solely funded by private capital, but is being prevented from passage by the Obama Administration’s failure to act on it. The Obama Administration has the opportunity to give a “thumbs up” yes, or a “thumbs down” no. The fact is that Obama wants this to be a plus for his 2012 campaign by appearing to be against the project now, but soon after his election he is expected to approve the project to reward the labor vote.
The United States needs reliable energy sources now, reliable jobs now, without being a puppet to the politicians and their elections.
Let Congress, Senate and the Obama Administration know how you feel. Is a Social Security temporary tax reduction of $40.00 per week (which further risks that Social Security will become insolvent, sooner) a positive thing for government to be concerned with? Or, should our elected representatives get out of the way of a private venture that will bring energy, jobs and much needed tax revenue to states and federal coffers?
