President Obama: The payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits extension would create more jobs than the Keystone XL pipeline

“President Obama said that he will delay his vacation and keep Congress in session until the passage of his desired payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits extension — two proposals that Obama said would create more jobs than the Keystone XL pipeline that his administration recently delayed.

“I would not ask anyone to do something I’m not willing to do myself,” Obama said. “We are going to stay here as long as it takes.”

As Obama called for passage of those bills, he also responded to a recent Republican push to require him to approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada. “However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline,” he said, “they’re going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance.”" — Joel Gehrke, Copyright 2011 Washington Examiner
