The attorneys general for 14 states have sent President Joe Biden blasting him for the “devastating” loss of jobs he caused by signing an executive order canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The AGs also noted that they are exploring legal options to have Biden’s anti-American executive order nullified.
“Please be aware that the states are reviewing available legal options to protect our residents and sovereign interests. In the meantime, we urge you to reconsider your decision to impose crippling economic injuries on states, communities, families, and workers across the country,” Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen wrote in a letter sent to the Biden administration.
“We write with alarm regarding your unilateral and rushed decision to revoke the 2019 Presidential Permit for the Keystone XL pipeline,” the letter continued. “Your decision will result in devastating damage to many of our states and local communities. Even those states outside the path of the Keystone XL pipeline – indeed all Americans – will suffer serious, detrimental consequences.”
The letter added that because of Biden’s actions, “the real-world costs are devastating.”

“It’s bad enough for the government to pick winners and losers in the marketplace, but much worse when the winners are aspirational. Aspirations don’t put food on the table, or pay the phone bill, or put kids through college. Jobs do, and you eliminated thousands of them with the stroke of a pen,” the letter said.
“It is not too much to ask that the President give due consideration to the destructive consequences his decisions impose on our – and his – constituents,” the letter exclaimed. “We are therefore deeply concerned that your unilateral approach, which failed to consider costs and reliance interests, sets a dangerous precedent for other permits and projects that affect all our states.”
Biden, though, has made the outrageous claim that he is going to “invest” in better jobs for the future … though, there is absolutely no proof that these “better jobs” are anywhere near the horizon.
“The Biden-Harris administration has proposed transformative investments in infrastructure that will create millions of good union jobs here in America, boost the U.S. economy, and advance our climate and clean energy goals,” said Assistant Press Secretary Vedant Patel.
Well, maybe a hundred years from now. Meanwhile tens of thousands are out of work right this minute and have NO prospects for new “better” jobs despite the airy proclamations by Joe Biden.
It’s just more evidence that al Democrats ever do is destroy jobs and lives.
