President Obama made a political decision instead of listening to the American people by vetoing the Keystone XL Pipeline legislation.  The President's decision to play politics doesn't mean the end!  The Pipeline is good for Arkansas and good for America and I will continue to fight for it.

The Keystone XL Pipeline will help create jobs in Arkansas and throughout America.  It will increase our energy security and will decrease our reliance on oil from the Middle East.  President Obama gave into the liberal special interest groups and ignored the American people.

His reason for the veto is ironic given his record of ignoring the Constitution of the United States.  The President told the Senate: "Through this bill, the United States Congress attempts to circumvent longstanding and proven processes for determining whether or not building and operating a cross-border pipeline serves the national interest."

We must continue to send our message to President Obama - We aren't finished - build the Keystone XL Pipeline!
