President Fights Keystone, ‘Personally’

President Fights Keystone, ‘Personally’

Despite A White House Denial About Efforts To ‘Turn Down The Keystone Pipeline,’ President Obama Is ‘Personally Lobbying’ To Reject It

 

‘Phone Calls From The President To Democrats’

 

“President Barack Obama is intervening in a Senate fight over the Keystone XL oil pipeline and personally lobbying Democrats to reject an amendment calling for its construction, according to several sources familiar with the talks.” (“Obama Lobbying Dems Over Pipeline,” Politico, 3/7/12)

 

·         “The White House lobbying effort, including phone calls from the president to Democrats, signals that the vote could be close when it heads to the floor Thursday.” (“Obama Lobbying Dems Over Pipeline,” Politico, 3/7/12)

 

·         “The measure would need 60 votes to pass, and Obama has already lost two Democrats who back the proposal – Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Mary Landrieu – and is at risk of losing more moderates and vulnerable Democrats.” (“Obama Lobbying Dems Over Pipeline,” Politico, 3/7/12)

White House Last Month

 

JAY CARNEY: “…the President didn’t turn down the Keystone pipeline.” (Jay Carney, Press Briefing, 2/21/12)

 

‘The Keystone XL Project Begins And Ends With One Word: JOBS’

 

INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF TEAMSTERS: “‘The Keystone Pipeline project will offer working men and women a real chance to earn a good wage and support their families in this difficult economic climate,’ said… James P. Hoffa.” (TransCanada, “U.S. Pipeline Contractors Association And Unions Pledge Their Support For Keystone XL Project,” 9/14/10)

 

AFL-CIO: “For America’s skilled craft construction professionals, any discussion of the Keystone XL project begins and ends with one word: JOBS… Throughout America’s Heartland, the Keystone Pipeline represents the prospect for 20,000 immediate jobs, and as many as 500,000 indirect jobs via a strong economic multiplier effect… without one single dollar of government assistance.” (Mark H. Ayers, President, Building And Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO,  “For The 99% Of Americans, Keystone = JOBS,” Huffington Post, 11/3/11)

 

·         AFL-CIO: “Enactment of S.1932 will mean a significant portion of the projected 20,000 direct jobs and the 118,000 spin-off jobs will be created immediately.” (AFL-CIO Building And Construction Trades Department President Mark Ayers, Letter To Sen. Lugar, 12/6/11)
