The GOP’s latest job-creation lie: Stunning hypocrisy in the Keystone Pipeline crusade

GOP Congress Agenda

The 114th Congress has gotten off to a ridiculous start, with a massive effort on the part of the new Republican majority to push through a project with no credible benefits — the Keystone XL pipeline — and exposed their many hypocrisies in the process.

It was never true, for example, that Keystone would lower local gas prices, and the fact that the price of oil is now at its lowest level in a decade has rendered that myth more or less irrelevant. Meanwhile, the only way advocates could argue that the pipeline isn’t going to have a negative impact on the environment is if they truly don’t believe that greenhouse gas emissions contribute to climate change.
