Republican Montana Sen. Steve Daines on Friday criticized President Joe Biden’s administration over the cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline, throwing 11,000 high paid workers out of a job. That number increases to 42,100 when jobs related to the pipeline are taken into consideration. While it is a bust for American workers, Saudi Arabia and other Middle East and Russian companies will benefit.
Biden promised to reverse all of Trump’s policies and he is keeping that promise by ending Americans First and changing it to Americans Last.
In just a couple of days, we can already see a pattern. Biden’s friends stand to make a killing while the middle class must pay the price, including rollbacks of the Trump tax cuts and a whole bevy of new taxes will be applied.
Biden has already broken his promise of $2000 stimulus checks.
But he and Pelosi and Schumer are going to roll back the $10,000 maximum write-offs for state and local taxes.
This benefits only the rich and will cost the treasury three times more than giving everyone $6,000. And the rich will get that money every year with an average of $1 million dollars per millionaire and billionaire.
That will protect Hunter Biden’s payments from China.
“I think it’s all part of President Biden’s Saudi Arabia first plan. It looks like he cares more about workers in Saudi Arabia than the workers in America. This is going to have a direct effect on the pocketbooks of the American people. Here we are in the middle of a pandemic.”
“He just killed 11,000 jobs. It’s 80 million dollars a year of tax revenues for my state of Montana to impoverished counties to help them make ends meet for schools, for law enforcement, for infrastructure. This is a major infrastructure project that President Biden killed six hours into his presidency.”
Daines referenced Saudi Arabia because it is one of the world’s largest crude oil producers. The U.S. increased its own energy production under President Donald Trump and became the world’s largest crude oil producer, passing Saudi Arabia, and Russia, and relying less on energy production from the Middle East and other countries.
Biden signed an executive order on Jan. 20 revoking the permits that allowed the construction of the pipeline. The future of the pipeline is still uncertain, as the order could be challenged in court by TC Energy.
