President Claims Keystone XL Jobs, Energy Security, Not in the National Interest

Statement

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement today regarding the President's rejection of the job-creating Keystone XL pipeline:

"Since when is the creation of thousands of jobs not in the national interest as the President now claims? His decision to block the development of the Keystone XL pipeline, thousands of jobs, and increased energy security is stunning. His decision shows a fundamental disconnect with job creation in this country, and sadly, that his focus is on appealing to his liberal environmental base rather than taking steps that can lead to thousands of jobs and energy security for our nation."
