More Democrat Logic - Waxman on Keystone: ‘We Don’t Need this Dirty Oil’
Representative Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) – the top Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee – said that America does not need the “dirty oil” that would be imported through the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, which received long-awaited favorable environmental review from the U.S. government.
“We don’t need this dirty oil. To stop climate change and the destructive storms, droughts, floods, and wildfires that we are already experiencing, we should be investing in clean energy, not building a pipeline that will speed the exploitation of Canada’s highly polluting tar sands,” Waxman said in a statement on Friday responding to the government’s analysis.
The democrat strategy has been to circumvent congress since the democrats won't go along with Obama's corrupt green energy policy. Obama is going through the far leftist EPA which is increasing regulations of fossil fuels, increasing taxation, and eliminating taxation on solar panels, wind generation etc. having the corrupt Regime' make green energy competitive with fossil fuels. It is costing everyone higher energy costs that cripple the economy.
