Congressional Republicans are refusing to back down in their attempts to win speedy approval of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline, vowing to link approval of the controversial project to a new jobs bill being introduced next week.

“All options are on the table,” John Boehner, speaker of the House of Representatives, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Now that the president has decided for political reasons that we’re not going to move ahead just yet, not until after the election … we’re going to have to find another way to lean on the Senate, to take this issue up, because the Keystone pipeline will create over 100,000 indirect jobs.”

The conservatives need to continuously pass small jobs bills until the jobs numbers show large gains..

yes it might help Obama... but doing other wise is helping Obama as well..

I would attach the pipeline to every job or energy bill that passes through the house until it is finally approved..

it is time to make the president do more then vote "present" on major issues..

Time to do what they do best in DC tack the pipeline on to a bill the Dems would be playing political suicide if the Senate didn't pass and Obama didn't sign. Something that he REALLY wants done ASAP. He wants a Jobs bill then give him one let's see if he is serious about making Jobs his top priority.

not only should the pipeline be hammered home..

but the ban on drilling in Ohio should be presented as well...



President Obama's United States Department of Agriculture has delayed shale gas drilling in Ohio for up to six months by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF). The move was taken in deference to environmentalists, on the pretext of studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing.

“Conditions have changed since the 2006 Forest Plan was developed," announcedWNF Supervisor Anne Carey on Tuesday. "The technology used in the Utica & Marcellus Shale formations need to be studied to see if potential effects to the surface are significantly different than those identified in the Forest Plan." The study will take up to six months to complete.
