President Joe Biden addressed a Joint Session of Congress for the first time on Wednesday night. Speaking to a historically empty lower chamber, Biden claimed to be focused on job creation. The president said that he sees climate change as an avenue to create well-paying jobs, just 100 days after he canceled the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline by revoking the permit previously given.

Then why did he cancel the Keystone XL pipeline on Day 1, destroying 11,000 jobs?
In Biden's first 100 days in office, he has:— House Committee on Small Business Republicans (@HSBCgop) April 28, 2021
? Signed $60,000,000,000 of tax hikes into law
? Proposed overturning 27 state "Right to Work" laws
? Cancelled 11,000 jobs sustained by the Keystone Pipeline
All are attacks on our nation's small businesses & the American worker.

-guy who killed the Keystone Pipeline with its clean energy and thousands of jobs as his first act as President #JointAddress
The cancelation of the pipeline did nothing for job creation. In fact, Biden's executive order to rescind the permit cost thousands of well-paying jobs in the energy sector.

REALITY CHECK: He cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline on day 1, and he has NEVER addressed the workers who lost their jobs.
