Keystone Pipeline Decision – 8 More Agencies Must Weigh In
Posted by madjillmom on February 4, 2014
Remember after Obama lost the House in 2010, his 2011 State of the Union speech promised to eliminate duplication and excess regulation in our ever-growing government. His talking point was amusing, citing the salmon and the agencies that regulate it in freshwater, another in salt water, another when caught, and another when canned or sold. Guess he wasn’t able to do anything about that. Another Obama promise flushed down the drain.
We have now heard from the State Department on the Keystone Pipeline. They say it won’t cause very much damage. So now, Obama can’t OK it because 8 more government agencies have to study it and weigh in. The 800 lb. gorilla is the EPA who won’t want it. What other agencies are the other 7? It took 5 years to get to this point. Ridiculous.
While Obama fiddles and whines about Fox News, this oil will go to China. China gives not one whit about clean air and carbon in the atmosphere. If you love the world and want to protect it, build the pipeline. It is kind of funny how Obama uses his pen without authority to be King but won’t use his actual power on something like this.
