WASHINGTON, D.C. --Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) today voted for H.J.RES. 98, disapproving of the President's exercise of authority to increase the debt limit. He is a cosponsor of the resolution and issued the following statement:

"Although symbolic -- as the agreement to increase the debt-limit was reached prior to my election -- this vote is my opportunity to record opposition, on behalf of my constituents, to adding another $1.2 trillion to our national debt.

"We are already the most debt-ridden nation in history and Washington's business as usual attitude indicates that it does not grasp the gravity of our crisis.

"As I said when I voted for the Balance Budget Amendment, Washington's fatal spending problem is every American's problem because it's dragging down our economy and our way of life. Unless we get spending under control now, the country we give our grandchildren will be in far worse shape than the one we inherited."

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) today issued the following statement regarding the Obama Administration's decision to reject the permit application for the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring oil produced in Canada down to the U.S. Gulf Coast:

"Today the President sent a clear message to the American people that he is not serious about creating jobs and not serious about energy policy. The decision to kill TransCanada Corp.'s Keystone XL pipeline is the decision to kill 20,000 jobs and end the potential for 100,000 to 200,000 additional jobs.

"It is also the decision to kill up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day from an ally and our largest trading partner that could replace imports we buy from the hostile Middle East. That's oil that could help stabilize and reduce prices at the pump.
 
"Despite a thorough environmental impact review that classified the Keystone XL project as low risk, the President caved to political pressure from special interests opposed to development of fossil fuels of any kind.

"The Canadians have already made clear that they will find alternative markets for this oil, most likely China, so this decision serves no other purpose than to satisfy part of the President's political base.

"The message from the President is clear: 'No American jobs. No energy policy that includes allies. And let's embrace our vulnerabilities to the Middle East, Venezuela and China.'"
