President chose money over job creation

Success - Article sent! close

I doubt many heard the announcement made (or rather buried on) Good Friday by the Obama administration because most people were focused on Easter. Once again a decision on the Keystone pipeline from Canada to Texas has been delayed until after the elections. Tom Steyer, a billionaire environmentalist from San Francisco, doesn't want it and has threatened to withhold $100 million for vulnerable Democratic congressional races if Obama approves the pipeline. Faced with the choice of creating tens of thousands of jobs or following the orders of an environmental extremist, Obama chose the billionaire.
