The Keystone pipeline would have created new jobs (est 20K) for the construction and then many refinery jobs in a couple of states to refine the heavy sulfur crude. Sending the sands crude to China only helps them and Canada. We lost out and the president was stupid to axe the project. Democrats made sure no new jobs would happen. The project goes back to the Bush era and was virtually approved this past summer only to be wacked at the last political moment. Just one reason to replace obama and the rest of the demon-crats.
