Why did experts say the American Jobs Act would create more jobs than the Keystone Pipeline?

If you look at the facts, the American Jobs Act would have created more jobs than the Keystone Pipeline, so why did cons filibuster the AJA and are whining about the pipeline being delayed so people's water won't be contaminated?
