Republicans blame Democrats on pipe plant jobs

Posted By on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 7:10 AM

Welspun, the pipe plant in Little Rock, says it will lay off 60 temporary workers because of a slowdown in shipments related to delays in the Keystone pipeline from Canada through middle America. Talk Business reports.

The Republican echo chamber machine is busily blaming this on Democrats. It's worth a reminder that Republican elected officials in Nebraska threw up the biggest objections to hurryup orders on this pipeline because of fears of damage to their water supply. Are 60 temporary jobs in Little Rock really worth more than careful consideration of long-term environmental impact? With an election pending, for Republicans the cynical answer is easy. Go to full demagogue mode. None of them gives a hoot about the environment.
