After nearly a decade of hemming and hawing over TransCanada's application to build the Keystone XL pipeline (most of which has occurred during Barry's tenure) it appears that Barry will wield his mighty pen during the legislative recess next month and veto it.
According to Senator Hoeven and his sources, President Obama will veto the Keystone XL pipeline during the August recess. We’ve surpassed 2,504 days since TransCanada first submitted its petition to build the pipeline in September of 2008. Since then, AAF found that the U.S. has left $175 billion in economic activity on the table by not acting. Bloomberg reports that TransCanada will now pursue other pipelines through Canada to send their oil to the Atlantic.
Give Barry points for consistency; if there's a way to retard economic growth in this country, he'll go for it every time.
