TOM SMITH REBUKES OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ON KEYSTONE PIPELINE DECISION

(Pittsburgh)  - Tom Smith, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, today released the following statement after the Obama administration’s decision to reject the Keystone energy pipeline:

“President Obama today chose the appeasement of his most liberal special interest allies ahead of 20,000 new American jobs,” said Smith.  “While the President continues to pay lip service to creating jobs and reducing energy costs, today’s decision is further proof that he is more focused on pandering to the far-left that fill his campaign coffers, than taking action to create jobs.”
