    No it doesnt. No where in that article does it suggest there will be growth in jobs in American refineries...

    Those are not part of the boomtown problem in the producing area. The crude would be sent to the Gulf to be refined; increased refinery employment logically follows.
    Except as your own link states that it can very much become a "boomtown" and because of the historical precedent, oil prices, and lack of "spin off factors" (as the article describes) will lead to little to nothing... But hey at least you got a giant "maybe"....

    The pipeline is a valuable addition to infrastructure and industrial capacity irrespective of job creation. I happen to find the logic compelling that increased volume through the refineries will create jobs, but I would favor the pipeline even if there were none.

    Even tho its only expected to create 35 permanent American jobs...

    Apparently the vast majority who have studied the subject would beg to differ. And even the own article you use to back up your points begs to disagree... But yea, whatever you are right!

    The oil will go to developing nations like Korea and Latin America. Developing nations need fuel oil. Get over it. People other than Americans need gas and heat.

    Sorry, but the article I posted does not disagree. It properly describes uncertainty in projections, but also notes the logic of increased employment in refineries and related industrial activity. And your propaganda figure of 35 jobs remains laughable. Finally, I'll say again that I would be for it even if it created no jobs at all.

    As expected it passes the Senate. Now its gonna get a veto and go back. Its gonna easily overcome the 2/3 requirement in the House the big question remains will it overcome the 2/3 in the Senate?[/FONT][/COLOR]
    The Senate will not over come the Veto, but politically it is brilliant. It will put all those democrat Senators 'on the record' as opposing it for the 2016 Election. There
    is another 1/3 of Dem Senators that have to face the voters for the ObamaCare debacle in 2016, and this vote will be another nail in their coffin.

    If....big IF, I know....the pipeline created no jobs, what would be your rationale for a foreign corp. using eminent domain against US citizens?
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    No. I'm simply asking for some information.

    The GOP is going to have a tough time holding the Senate in 2016. Too many seats up on their side along with the Presidency in play. Their money will be spread a lot thinner than the DNC.
