Taxpayers must pay the freight for over-budget train projects
Topic - Diana Furchtgott-Roth
A string of deadly accidents and safety scares in recent months involving rail cars carrying crude oil is vividly demonstrating the dangers of relying on trains to transport the growing volumes of fuel being produced in North America, while giving ammunition to those who say the stalled Keystone XL and other pipelines are preferred ways to safely funnel fuel to market.
President Obama and the Democrats still don't get it. They laid down their budget markers this week, seeking to impose nearly $1 trillion in new taxes on an economy that's still struggling to get back on its feet.
Congressional Republicans Thursday stepped up their criticism of the Obama administration over what they say is a free pass being given to defense companies facing major layoffs from looming federal spending cuts.
President Obama's re-election has put a new spring in the step of environmentalists, renewing hope not just for more aggressive climate-change policy but for continued emphasis on "green" energy despite the spectacular failure and serial bankruptcies of Solyndra and other green-energy darlings.
Ms. Furchtgott-Roth said the nation needs a "new generation of pipelines" to carry oil and natural gas from the American heartland and Canada to the Gulf Coast.
Pipelines also are needed to deliver shale gas from sources in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Alabama and North Dakota to the rest of the country, she said.
