Is The Pipeline About To Be Killed?

Nebraska Congressman Lee Terry says it isn’t just President Obama who has set a negative tone on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline…its other members of the administration. . .

Terry rejects recent assertions by the president that Keystone wouldn’t create many jobs…that it won’t offset Middle Eastern oil…and that it won’t benefit America’s energy needs.
He will keep pushing Congress to by-pass the president and approve the pipeline even if Obama issues a veto threat. . .
