WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement today following the decision made by President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.

“The environmental left has taken over the White House. There is no logical reason not to build the Keystone XL pipeline. Keystone XL is a job creator.

“It’s buying oil from a friend, not an enemy. If we don’t buy the oil from Canada, they will sell it to China. This is not an environmental issue. This is an issue of radical environmentalists taking over the White House destroying economic opportunity and energy independence for North America.”
