Biden administration forced to admit Keystone XL pipeline was mistake

January 24, 2023

The report was released so quietly that more than a month later, most Americans still don't know about it.

In late December, the President Joe Biden administration quietly released a congressionally mandated report that effectively admitted the Keystone XL pipeline cancellation was a mistake. 

According to the report, the pipeline would have created between 16,149 and 59,000 jobs and would have had a positive economic impact of between $3.4-9.6 billion. But hardly anyone heard Biden's de facto mea culpa, because the report was released without any public announcement.

The problem is, the Biden administration isn't sorry about canceling the pipeline even though it would have been good for the economy and provided 830,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Canada, which the U.S. sorely needs right now.

No remorse

One of the few who noticed the report was Steve Daines (R-MT), who said earlier in January,

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. Unfortunately, the administration continues to pursue energy production anywhere but the United States.

The Biden administration has doubled down on the disastrous policies that have caused gas and oil prices to more than double in a year, including green energy provisions in the so-called Inflation Reduction Act that are expected to cost Americans $369 billion.

Biden has already hurt 28% of Americans, who said they had to cut back on needed food or medicine to pay their energy bill.

Without the ability to get needed gas and oil supplies, prices are only expected to continue to rise, and Biden is not doing anything about it.

Dire straits if Biden policies continue

In Europe where they have been doing the green energy thing for longer than the U.S., many countries are now reversing their policies as their sources of oil and gas (like Russia, Ukraine) vanish.

In Germany, there have been shortages of firewood, and you can't buy a wood stove until next winter.

This could be the U.S.'s fate if Biden continues to stay the course with his policies, and he knows it full well.

Just ask yourself this question: why would Biden want the American people to suffer when he could do something about it?

There's no good answer to that question.
