Three Facts About Keystone XL & High Gas Prices
Congressman John Boehner
April 18, 2012
Here are three quick facts to keep in mind today as the House votes to require approval of the Keystone XL energy project, despite President Obamas attempts to stop it:
THREE MONTHS: Today marks three months since President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, followed by his personal lobbying campaign against it. These efforts did not deter Nebraska; Governor Heineman signed legislation yesterday to move the pipeline forward.
THREE YEARS: The Keystone XL pipeline was under review for more than three years. The project would create tens of thousands of new American jobs and deliver badly needed energy to refineries on the Gulf Coast, and is widely supported by the American people.
THREE-FOURTHS: More than 3/4 of the American people closely following the news think Keystone XL should be approved. And more than 3/4 of small business owners say rising energy prices are threatening their companies, according to the OC Register.
