The Pipeline

JP, you’ve been against the pipeline going from Canada through the US midsection. I have been reticent.

I’ve decided I am for it. I would support a bill that passes the pipeline, with solid environmental regulations around it. I do not support the pipeline bill connected to the payroll tax cut. Those two issues are entirely separate. I would like to see if it does generate jobs. I also think it will build ties with Canada, and lower oil prices. It should be attached to a clean energy tax, supporting wind, solar, and mass transit. And I believe environmental protection rules can do as they should.
