Chabot on Keystone Veto; Cincinnati Jobs

WASHINGTON - Following President Obama’s veto of bipartisan legislation approving construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) issued the following statement:

“When we talk about the jobs Keystone would support, we’re not just talking about numbers. We’re talking about real people, like those I’ve met at the Siemens factory in Cincinnati who stand ready to manufacture the electric motors for the pipeline. We’re talking about more than 42,000 hardworking Americans in cities and towns all over the country who are paying the price for President Obama’s political temper tantrum.

Republicans, Democrats, and the people who sent us here want the Keystone Pipeline. We’ll continue to fight for what is right, even if President Obama made it clear today that he will not.”
