First, you overstated the number of jobs by 10,000. The Keystone Pipeline would employ some 1000 construction workers for a limited time followed by roughly 100 maintenance and service personnel, not worth the potential environmental risk. Second, remember that the pipeline was originally designed to pass near Bismark, but the mostly, Euro-American residents fought it on the grounds that it might endanger THEIR drinking water so they rerouted the pipeline over Native Indian lands with sensitive watershed. However, the pipeline happened to also cross ranchers’ lands who had more political pull, so they all fought the pipeline together. Three: oil sands oil extraction is environmentally destructive to begin with. Four: oil prices are at an all-time low making oil sands extraction extremely unprofitable, so this whole exercise is moot. This was an idiotic boondoggle from the start.

Cruz and Hawley were a tad, bit, too late. Nice knowin’ ya’! NOT!
That’s called “PTSD.” Hopefully, enough of our representatives were freaked out enough to never, ever, let this happen again…
Remember the GOP C-blocking Obama for four years? What a waste of time!
Ooh, Boo-Boo, get your feelings hurt? Separating families and putting children in cages wasn’t enough?
