Would The Keystone Pipeline create jobs for manufacturing as well as construction?
For years instead of stimulus that lasted a few months? For very little taxpayer dollars instead of stimulus that cost hundreds of thousands per job that did not even last a year? Hundreds of miles of stainless steel pipe or plate for the mills. Thousands of valves and fittings for fabricators and foundries.
