Paul Ryan Says Keystone Pipeline Will Solve Ukraine Problem
Wouldn’t it be great if building a pipeline could stop Vladimir Putin from doing what Vladimir Putin does? See, all we have to do is build the pipeline that libruls don’t want and, just like that, no war. CNN’s Kate Bolduan asked Ryan what could be done to solve the international crisis.
“Well, I think we should move forward on natural gas exports very quickly,” the former GOP vice presidential nominee insisted. “I think we should approve an LNG terminal in the east coast to go to Europe. I think we should approve the Keystone Pipeline. And I think we should show that the U.S. is going to be moving forward on becoming energy independent.”
“Moving forward with the Keystone pipeline!” Bolduan exclaimed. “That development would take years, though, to actually make that happen.”
Ryan argued that the controversial pipeline would be a “signal” to Russia.
“The signal is very, very important,” he declared. “And I think showing that this [invasion] is going to make us move in that direction helps give our allies the kind of resources they need, and reduces Russia’s grip on this.”
