    Republicans need to stand their ground..

    The vast majority of Americans & businesses don't want ObamaCare. Obama acting like a dictator & socialist. ObamaCare will cause another recession. Lets hope the Republicans win on this one.

    • Saw where O said that his healthcare plan had nothing to do with businesses not hiring. He is so funny. Keystone will create 50 jobs according to him. What a clown.

      • 50 jobs sounded like something a clown would say.
        Obama did say that the pipeline would create probably 50 to 100 PERMANENT jobs after construction was completed. He suggested a temporary creation of 2,000 jobs. The environmental report says 3,900.

        The only site that I saw that was pushing the "50 jobs" story was Breitbart which used the same Tampa Bay Times and State Department numbers down in the Breitbart article. The "50" makes such an exciting headline number for those who want to run with it.

        Tampa Bay Times POLITIFACT:
        "As for jobs, the president went out of his way to downplay them. In the big picture, they were but a "blip", as the president put it.

        "Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator. There is no evidence that that’s true," Obama said. "Any reporter who is looking at the facts would take the time to confirm that the most realistic estimates are this might create maybe 2,000 jobs during the construction of the pipeline -- which might take a year or two -- and then after that we’re talking about somewhere between 50 and 100 jobs in a economy of 150 million working people."

        There’s been a running battle over jobs and the Keystone XL. We’ve checked claims that it would employ as many as 20,000 workers. We rated that False; even the company behind the pipeline backed away from that number."
