The government has nothing to do with drilling for oil, obtaining it from oil shale, or putting the Keywtone pipeline in. The government does not fund these things, free enterprise does. If they get the fuel from government land, the government collects royalties. If they get it from private land, the land owner collects royalties. In any case the government is not out one thin dime for the work. If the oil companies think they can make money going after this oil, it is on them, not the gov't
