The Obama administration’s decision to deny an important easement needed to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) represents one last single-finger salute to Middle America from the outgoing president.
Rural Americans face tough challenges, and by killing the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines and by imposing several costly regulations on energy development, President Barack Obama has only served to make these challenges worse.
People living in rural areas face high levels of poverty. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates 17.7 percent of rural U.S. families live below the federal poverty line, and rural people make approximately 32 percent less money, about $15,800 per year, than people living in urban areas. Obama’s restrictions on energy development have done nothing to alleviate rural poverty rates or grow wages; they’ve only made these problems worse. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/12/07/isaac-orr-dakota-pipeline-decision-obamas-last-screw-rural-america/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social
