Pipeline Promises May Have Been Too Good to be True

Posted: Updated:

The pipeline may not be as great for the economy as many have been led to believe.

Job numbers and other benefits of the Keystone XL pipeline have probably been exaggerated, said the president to House republicans in a closed-door meeting on Wednesday.

The president didn't rule out a decision to approve the 7 billion dollar pipeline running through our state but Nebraska representative Lee Terry, says Obama appeared "conflicted" on the pipeline.

He pointed out that many of the promised jobs would be temporary and much of the oil produced likely would be exported.
