Rep. AOC Falsely Claims Keystone XL and Pipeline 3 Would Export U.S. Gas Abroad

‘I believe Line 3 should not exist’


OCASIO-CORTEZ: "And I am very much in support of stopping Line 3 and frankly, a lot of line — from Line 3 to Keystone Pipeline to all of this, it has to do with — a lot of this has to do with the decision that Congress made not too long ago, relatively, to allow the United States to be an exporter of natural gas. Because when you look at Keystone XL and you look at a lot of these other pipelines, people say, oh, this is for energy, you know, independence in the United States. We actually already produce enough to power our own country. Whether you agree with it or not, that is just what it is. A lot of these pipelines are being built so that the United States can export and sell natural gas abroad. And, you know, people make geopolitical arguments as to why that should be the case. You know, that aside, I think, you know, whether we actually one hundred percent need it, I believe Line 3 should not exist."
