Obama to Say No to Keystone XL Pipeline

The Obama administration rejected the Keystone XL pipeline and said that Republicans, by only providing the administration 60 days to assess the environmental impact, are to blame for the answer.

Deputy Secretary of State Williams Burns made the announcement on the President's behalf.

Republicans quickly responded by saying that the decision made by Obama also rejected the creation of thousands of American jobs.

A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner said, "The president won't stand up to his political base even to create American jobs. This is not the end of this fight."
