GOP’s artificial deadline threatens the Keystone XL pipeline

leave a comment »

The GOP is being rather snotty over forcing a provision into the payroll tax cut/unemployment benefits deal requiring a 60-day deadline for President Barack Obama to decide on the Keystone XL pipeline project.

The president doesn’t get off easily either, since his administration set an artificial deadline of 2013.

Both sides act like they don’t want the pipeline, but want to blame the other side.
