President Obama has stood his ground and killed a permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, but Republican leaders in Congress are trying to force its approval by attaching it to unrelated legislation. Tell your senators and representative to stop holding our government hostage to the interests of Big Oil!
“I am appalled that some members of Congress keep trying to raise the Keystone XL pipeline from the dead by attaching it to unrelated legislation. Please work to keep the pipeline provision out of any measure under consideration — and vote No on any bill that includes a Keystone XL rider.
President Obama has already done the bidding of the American people by rejecting this destructive project. Please make sure that our government is not held hostage by a fossil fuel scheme that will enrich the oil companies while impoverishing our health and environment. Congress should spend its time doing the work it promised to undertake, not playing cynical political games that will only advance the interests of Big Oil.
