Dear Mr. President:
Your decision today to reject the Keystone XL pipeline will deny thousands of jobs to out-of-work Americans. This Keystone project would have cost the taxpayer ZERO, unlike past stimulus bills favored by you and those in Congress. In fact, the Keystone project would have added millions of dollars to state coffers at a time when states are desperate for additional revenue.
It belies logic why, at a time of near record unemployment, you would stand in the way of job creation. You traversed the country a few months ago, touting your “jobs” plan – a plan to spend hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars only to deny a real jobs plan that would cost taxpayers nothing.
It is clear that the only job you are concerned about is your own.
I checked the box requesting a reply. When, and if, I get a response, I’ll post it here.
