Saturday Speeches: Streamlining Gov’t, Energy [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama is using his weekly radio and Internet address to promote government streamlining and jobs incentives he unveiled during the week.

Republicans are extoling the benefits of a proposed oil pipeline from Canada to refineries in Texas.

Obama says his initiative to consolidate agencies will make the government leaner and more efficient. He is also promising tax incentives for businesses that he says will bring jobs to the U.S. instead of shipping them overseas. He wants to eliminate tax breaks for companies that outsource.

For the GOP, North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven says the Keystone XL project will create jobs by bringing the oil to U.S. refineries. He says without it, the oil will still be produced and wind up in China.

Hoeven says if he doesn’t approve the project, Obama is turning his back on American workers.
