Scott Reacts to President’s Short Sighted, Politically Motivated Veto of Keystone XL Pipeline

Washington – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) issued the following statement following President Barack Obama’s short sighted, politically motivated veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, a bipartisan energy and infrastructure bill:

??”Today, the President vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline Act to appease a small portion of his political base, plain and simple. The new Republican majority sent him an energy and infrastructure bill that enjoyed broad support among the American public, Congressional Republicans and Democrats, labor unions and business owners large and small. Unfortunately, the President chose to forgo the tens of thousands of American jobs and billions of dollars for America’s economy for a short sighted, politically motivated veto.”
