Today, President Obama rejected 42,000 new jobs. These jobs would be created in communities throughout our nation, including places like Cincinnati, Ohio:
“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.”-Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) 2/24/2015
