On Fox News Sunday this morning, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told Chris Wallace that “We’re going to do everything we can to make sure the Keystone Pipeline is approved.” When Wallace pressed him whether Republican leadership would make the pipeline a condition for extending the payroll tax holiday, Boehner admitted, “We may,” adding (several times) that “All options are on the table.” Watch it:

Proponents of the pipeline have dwarfed opponents in lobbying spending, inflated the actual effect it will have onĀ job creation, and spread various myths designed to circumvent its environmental impact.
