The deal in Congress gives President Obama 60 days to make a decision on the XL pipeline.
He can't vote present.
Why has the economy struggled during Obama's tenure?
The price of oil has risen.
The XL pipeline and more exploration would help the economy, providing jobs and turning something from the ground into a valuable, usable commodity.
But Obama and his crew continue to preach fossil fuel abstinence.
Fossil fuels are important, but we need to end our addiction to them they say.
What's going to fill our cars and power plants with this fossil fuel abstinence?
If people are going to use energy anyway, you might as well teach them safe energy use instead of abstinence.
