PODCAST: US Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) Responds to Questions from Virginia Right!

Virginia Right! had the opportunity to ask US Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) a couple of questions on the Keystone XL pipeline that will create more jobs from private sector funds than anything else on the table.

Unfortunately, President Obama has bowed to pressure from the environmental extremists and killed the deal until after the election, when he no longer cares about or needs the vote from environmentalists.

Senator Barrasso currently sits on the Senate Energy Committee as well as the Environment and Public Works Committee which makes him (almost) uniquely qualified on the pipeline.

Keep in mind that this is not a publicly funded endeavor. It is entirely private, will create many union as well as non union jobs. The goal is to bring Canadian oil to the refineries in the Gulf region of the South.

It seems that Obama has calculated that the jobs created by this project will turn into fewer votes than appeasing the environmental groups, which is not the way decisions should be made.

Senator Barrasso delivers a short statement on the pipeline and I have edited the tape to include my question and a followup question to the Senator out of the nearly 20 minute call.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
