U.S. Rep. McSally Statement on Rejection of Keystone XL Pipeline

TUCSON — U.S. Representative Martha McSally today issued the following statement in reaction to President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline:

“It’s disappointing, but not surprising, to see the President reject what would be a plus for American workers and our economy. The President’s own State Department reported the Keystone Pipeline would add over 40,000 jobs and $3.4 billion to our economy, while having no significant climate effect. The President is not just turning down a good jobs project; he’s again throwing his political agenda ahead of doing what’s best for our country-as he did recently with our national defense authorization bill-and it’s everyday Americans who continue to suffer.”

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on President Obama’s rejection of the proposal to construct the Keystone XL pipeline:

“It is extremely disappointing but not surprising to see President Obama favor his liberal environmentalist allies over jobs for hardworking Americans by rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline. This pipeline would have immediately put Americans to work, enabled our nation to increase its domestic energy supply, and invested billions into an economy that is still recovering from the worst recession since the Great Depression. President Obama’s latest decision underscores the vital need to elect a Republican to the White House who will roll-back this Administration’s extreme regulatory agenda and move the Keystone XL pipeline forward.”

    Just like the “O” in my own name signifies “grandson of,” Mc or Mac refers to “son of.” From the rumors that have long circulated about Martha McSally, that may actually hold some truth.

    It’s time to retire McCain and his willing underlings. Conservatives should have best of class candidates recruited, trained and ready to challenge Jeff McFlake and Martha McMcSally. We can’t lead them into this high dollar, lobbyist and Chamber of Commerce infused underworld and then bid them a fond adieu. They need support and money to wage the battle that needs to be fought to unseat the deeply entrenched. Complaining about these lousy incumbents won’t do the job. Have you donated to Kelli Ward yet? If McCain’s not your guy, than get on board. She’s working hard at this race, but needs $$$ to counter the well funded McCain (who still keeps on begging for donations!!) I live in Tucson and realize the disastrous effects of McCain’s amnesty plans.

    A little off-topic, but should not be missed…..Open vs. Closed Primary voting…..Arizona is mentioned.

    The games played by the GOPe, federal and state.

    • Former GOP PC says:

      Registered Independents are growing in number across the country, and Jeb Bush exemplifies why. Conservatives are disgusted with establishment Republicrat candidates. In Arizona, many strong conservatives I know are also fed up with the limp-wrested GOP delegation, all too ready to make excuses for and facilitate illegal immigration. Add to that the fact that John McAwful’s minions have worked to force conservative PCs from our elected positions by running RINOs against us in district after district. Any Republican who votes for McCain needs to have his/her head examined. He is our enemy and has been screwing us over for decades.
