BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. GINGREY of Georgia. Mr. Chairman, it has been 1,706 days since the Keystone XL application has been submitted to our State Department. Instead of moving towards energy independence and job creation by approving this pipeline, we've learned that this administration has been spending its time wiretapping journalists and targeting conservative groups for their political beliefs.

Within the past 10 days, the Obama administration has spent much more time defending its violations of the First Amendment than seeking to add 830,000 barrels of product per day. The White House seems to care more about their own jobs than the 20,000 direct jobs and 100,000 indirect jobs created by the Keystone XL pipeline. This behavior is simply unacceptable.

Mr. Chairman, it is time that this body take action to bolster our economy, move our Nation towards energy independence--areas where this President has failed miserably.

I urge my colleagues to support H.R. 3.
