Republicans pledged to focus on the people’s priorities and we’re delivering on that pledge by pushing for the Keystone XL pipeline. It’ll mean more than 42,000 American jobs, and another step towards North American energy security. And while Keystone has been pending for nearly 2,350 days now – and we’ve made this case many times, many ways – we‘re offering you a couple of new avenues to consider why the president should reconsider his threat to veto the project.
First, you can watch this short video in which he sums up the case for Keystone in a tidy 57 seconds:
Second, you can check out this series of posts from last week, when we asked whether the president would say no to, well, just about everyone:
Will President Obama Say No to the American People?
Running down more than 30 surveys, we show that Americans have consistently – and overwhelmingly – backed the pipeline.
Will President Obama Snub Labor Unions on Keystone?
“A little courage from the administration would go a long way,” says one union that backed the Obama-Biden ticket twice.
Will President Obama Say No to Small Businesses on Keystone?
Keystone jobs will go to everyone from energy and construction workers to hotel and restaurant employees in the smallest towns, where the project will be a boon for local small businesses.
Will President Obama Say No To All The Democrats Who Back Keystone?
“It’s a shame, it’s just really, truly a shame,” one Senate Democrat says of the president’s opposition to the pipeline.
Will President Obama Deny Science on Keystone?
If President Obama vetoes Keystone, he’ll once again be putting politics before American jobs and settled science.
Or third, you can do both – in which case, thank you – and then check out these bonus materials featuring more voices from outside the Beltway:
From Oklahoma, the Case For Keystone Pipeline Jobs
In a recent Weekly Republican Address, Gov. Mary Fallin (R-OK) urged President Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, citing the jobs and opportunities it has already brought to her state. It’s a compelling case for action.
Republican Governors Urge President Obama to Back Keystone
Earlier this month, 24 Republican governors sent a letter to the president requesting that he reconsider his decision to veto the Keystone XL pipeline
Speaker Boehner Signs the Bipartisan Keystone Jobs Bill
“We’re excited to be at this point … and we urge the president of the United States to put our men and women back to work across the length of this pipeline as soon as possible,” Sean McGarvey, president of North America’s Building Trades Unions, said at the enrollment ceremony.
