BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – A group of Republican senators from western states joined with a chorus of other GOP voices in panning President Biden’s decision to revoke the permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline via executive order.
The senators said they will introduce legislation to reverse the Biden administration’s decision.
The addition to America’s oil pipeline system would take oil from the tar sands in Alberta, Canada, through Saskatchewan, Montana, South Dakota and eventually to Nebraska, where it would then meet with other existing pipelines.
The senators, led by Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., emphasized the effect the Biden order would have on Americans who were set to gain jobs from the pipeline.
President Biden responded to the criticism. “There won’t be any loss of jobs regarding that bogus pipeline,” explained Biden. “Mainly because I don’t think there are enough pipes on the planet to send oil across the ocean from Canada onto the shores of the United States to Nebraska. The hazards of workers being attacked and killed by sharks is simply not worth the risk.”
