Another Biden lie revealed. Biden Lost Out on Jobs, Billions of Dollars in Revoking Pipeline. Remember how we were told that the Pipeline wouldn’t produce any significant jobs or more oil? Well Biden’s DOE told a different story.
Biden’s actions on the permits effectively brought the expansive project to a halt. The report from late December estimates that a working pipeline would have been worth plenty: some $9.6 billion in economic benefits, along with nearly 60,000 jobs.
“The Biden administration finally owned up to what we have known all along — killing the Keystone XL Pipeline cost good-paying jobs, hurt Montana’s economy and was the first step in the Biden administration’s war on oil and gas production in the United States,” said Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., in a Thursday statement. He lamented what he described as a a squandering of rich economic opportunity and a staggering loss for working families.
“Unfortunately, the administration continues to pursue energy production anywhere but the United States. These policies may appeal to the woke left but hurt Montana’s working families,” he said. “I’ll keep fighting back against Biden’s anti-energy agenda and supporting Montana energy projects and jobs.”
According to reports, TC Energy signed an agreement with four labor unions in August 2020, and subsequently pledged to create 42,000 American jobs — with total wages approaching $2 billion.
