Amid praise from Bernie Sanders, Paul Ryan slams decision to deny permit for Dakota Access Pipeline | The Indian Express

House Speaker Paul Ryan called a decision by the US Army Corps of Engineers to deny a government permit for the Dakota Access oil pipeline “big-government decision-making at its worst.” The Wisconsin Republican tweeted Sunday night that he looks “forward to putting this anti-energy presidency behind us.”

The Army Corps announced Sunday that it will not allow the four-state, $3.8 billion pipeline to be built under Lake Oahe in North Dakota — a Missouri River reservoir where construction had been on hold. The decision is a victory for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its supporters, who argued the project would threaten the tribe’s water source and cultural sites.

Of course he did.  We would expect no less.

At some point, environmentally minded people are going to become the majority – when they are, they will remember how much hurt the Republicans (and Democrats too for that matter) have put on the ecosystem.  It will happen, and probably sooner than they think.

Thanks!
