Boehner: Keystone Breaks Obama's Jobs Promise
January 18, 2012, 2:41 PM
House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama is breaking his promise to create jobs by rejecting a plan to build an oil pipeline from Canada to Texas.
Boehner says Republicans will keep fighting for the Keystone XL pipeline because the project is good for the U.S. economy because it would create thousands of jobs.
The president says he's turning down the project not because it isn't worthy, but because of what he calls an arbitrary Feb. 21 deadline he was given by Congress to make a decision.
The deadline was set by a GOP-written provision as part of a tax bill that Obama signed into law just before Christmas.
