Obama Calls Out Republicans For Wasting Time On Keystone: ĎThatís Not A Jobs Planí



While Republicans have advocated for Keystone by insisting that it will create jobs, Obama slammed that assertion Tuesday, pointing to the Cornell University estimate that Keystone would only create 50 permanent jobs:

If (Congressional Republicans have) got a better plan to create jobs rebuilding our infrastructure or to help workers earn the high-tech skills they need, then they should offer up these ideas. But Iíve got to tell you, just gutting our environmental protection, thatís not a jobs plan. Gutting investments in education, thatís not a jobs plan. You know, they keep on talking about an oil pipeline coming down from Canada thatís estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs. Thatís not a jobs plan.
