Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) spoke on the Senate floor responding to reports that the President is personally lobbying Democrat Senators to vote against an amendment that would approve the Keystone pipeline’s construction:
"Today we learned that President Obama has been busy calling Senators on the other side of the aisle and asking them to vote against an amendment being offered by Senator Hoeven of North Dakota that would allow the Keystone XL pipeline project to move forward.
“The President, on the phone, calling Senators saying, ‘vote against the Keystone XL pipeline amendment offered by Senator Hoeven.’
“The President has previously said there's not a single morning he wakes up when he does not think about creating jobs, but apparently he woke up today thinking about how to lobby against jobs."
