President Biden’s decision to nix the Keystone XL pipeline has come under renewed fire as the administration struggles with rising consumer frustration over skyrocketing gas prices.
Sen. Joe Manchin III, West Virginia Democrat, made another plea for Mr. Biden to reverse his Jan. 20 executive order revoking the $8 billion pipeline expansion after the president announced Tuesday he would release 50 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
Meanwhile, Republicans were quick to connect the dots between the scuttled fossil-fuel project and the pain at the pump.
“As Joe Biden cries crocodile tears over the cost of gas crushing working-class Americans, remember his first action as president: canceling the Keystone pipeline,” tweeted Sen. Tom Cotton, Arkansas Republican. “Joe Biden is responsible for this mess.”
The wave of criticism came a day after TC Energy, the Canadian firm behind the Keystone XL project, moved ahead with its claim to recover $15 billion in economic damages over the permit revocation.
Cancelling the presidential permit issued by predecessor Donald Trump was one of Biden’s first decisions when he took office in January. #TCEnergy #KeystoneXL #KXL #Pipeline #ABGovhttps://t.co/BYAqeRFICb— 770 CHQR Global News Radio (@770CHQR) November 24, 2021
