Rejecting Keystone Puts Ideology Above the Common Good

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the Administration’s decision to reject TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline application:

“The Obama Administration just made the wrong decision for our country and for the American people. But what is more troubling than the President’s opposition to the Keystone pipeline is his preference to slow walk tough decisions to death. The President’s approach to this process and his ultimate decision reveals a lack of leadership when facing tough issues. His continued political posturing when met with ideas he doesn’t agree reveals a lack of critical thinking and a mindless attachment to ideology above the common good.”
