Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips issued this statement today, in response to President Obama's decision to block the Keystone XL pipeline permit:
“We are very disappointed that President Obama has chosen to stand in the way of private enterprise by blocking a permit for the Keystone pipeline, a project that could have brought thousands of much-needed jobs.
“While President Obama says he wants to ease unemployment that has risen under his Administration, his actions prove otherwise. Obama is apparently quite content to see $535 million taxpayer dollars wasted on failed companies like Solyndra, while deliberately blocking job growth that would come with the Keystone pipeline.
“President Obama’s action yesterday positions him as an adversary of economic freedom. We will be calling on our activists to tell him it’s time to get out of the way and allow the free market to bring the jobs and growth we so desperately need.”

By Rep. Raul R. Labrador and Rep. Mike Pompeo
Bill Clinton famously said, “The era of big government is over.” Well, it didn’t work out that way. But something truly remarkable is happening in our national conversation about energy subsidies: outrage, mounting opposition and, we hope, a swift end. This would be great news for taxpayers and consumers.
