One more example of why we need to rid ourselves of exceptions and loopholes corporations (and individuals) can work their way around to avoid paying their fair share.

You are the dunderhead who keeps falling for the half truths of conservative media sites like wmd.
First of all, once a segment of pipeline is completed, the workers move on to the next segment. That 8,500 figure includes the same 500 over and over again. Secondly, pump stations are not manned.
"The Keystone XL Pipeline will use a series of 41 electric powered pump stations to move oil
through the line – 33 pump stations in the United States and eight in Canada. Situated at
approximately 50-mile (80-km) intervals along the line, groups of pumps and supporting
equipment are located in a small, secure facility referred to as a pump station."
The Keystone "Pump stations include an electrical sub-station and small enclosures to house electrical, measurement and control system components. The pipeline and pump stations will be REMOTELY MONITORED AND CONTROLLED, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, FROM THE OIL CONTROL CENTER (OCC) IN CALGARY, ALTA." NO AMERICAN JOBS.

From the same Trans-Canada news release where your statistics came from:(although, I'm sure your source was a conservative media source known for half truths like World Net Daily):
"Typical union-based pipeline spread/segment for Keystone XL would employ Americans in the following positions:
Keystone XL - Jobs per pipeline spread/segment
16 Quality Control
5 Laborer Premium
1 Environmental Coordinator
2 Welding Foremen
1 R.O.W. Coordinator
29 Welder Premium
4 Safety Coordinators
4 Welders backend
16 Engineers
1 Journeyman
8 Foremen
24 Graded Helpers
9 Office Managers

24 Operators

23 Oilers
28 Mechanics
16 Straw Bosses
27 Security
2 Laborers
111 Timekeeper/clerks
1 Project Manager
2 Superintendents
2 Assistant Superintendents
TOTAL: 561 ...... TEMPORARY American workers.(And even these numbers are over estimated)

Obama is simply playing politics with the creation of jobs and oil independence. And to appease his base. Such as yourself.

Shallow politicians...shallow politics.

a tainted answer.
U.S. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee said on Wednesday he has been "assured" that if workers at the Volkswagen AG plant in his hometown of Chattanooga reject United Auto Worker representation, the company will reward the plant with a new product to build.
Corker's bombshell, which runs counter to public statements by Volkswagen,.....
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/13/us-...
but Corker's lie is all good until the German union boss threatens the same, which btw, he can actually do. and i'm sure he will.
one thing the Republican noise makers can't do...control a foreign entity. they can do whatever they want. shut down the plant and move it to Mexico if they so desire. then watch the Republicans who responsible blame everyone but themselves. just the usual.
get serious, you fool....

if VW really wanted a union, they would not have built the plant in Tennessee....

all the protests are just PR to keep the German union happy....

The point is...if an American company doesn't wish to spend their profits in America they should incorporate somewhere else and stop riding on our coattails.

This isn't a Cold War parallel. This is merely one world leader making another head of state look like what he actually is - an amateur fraud completely out of his league.
Putin has made Obama look like an amateur whore on stage waiting for the donkey to come out and do his show in Tijuana every time they met, starting with the strategic arms agreement Putin forced Obama to sign that required the US destroy half of its nuclear arsenal and Russia could keep all of its nuclear wareads, giving Russia about a 4 to 1 advantage, while China adds a couple hundred nukes to their stockpile every year.The last time Obama challenged Putin, Obama walked into a trap a blind idiot would recognize, and afterward the entire world gave Obama a vote of no confidence in a slam dunk case against the Syrian government.
The best thing for the United States is for Obama to just play golf until his term ends. He has been a disaster. That will not change because Obama will always be the ignorant lying fraud you see today, and it should be obvious by now what happens to lying fraud amateurs when they meet real heads of states out there in the real world.
once again you are able to lie to yourself about reality...

Putin backed down in his own backyard from the US standing alone from half a world away.

funny how you can look at the real world and not see what really happened.
