President Obama Lobbying Against Keystone XL Pipeline

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell spoke on the floor today and claimed President Obama is calling Democratic Senators to ask them to vote against Senator Hoeven’s amendment on the Keystone XL Pipeline. McConnell said on the floor, “There’s a report this morning that President Obama is personally making phone calls to Democrat Senators he thinks might vote for this amendment. He’s asking them not to. And, frankly, it’s hard to even comprehend how out of touch he is on this issue. I mean, think about it: at a moment when millions are out of work, gas prices are skyrocketing and the Middle East is in turmoil, we’ve got a president who’s up making phone calls trying to block a pipeline here at home. It’s unbelievable.”
