1. The pipe network in Mass is 150 years + old in some places. Experts have been warning about a disaster there for years.

Here's a Politico article from 2015 that explains how Obama's agency never did anything to fix the problem.

2. In 2015, the Obama administration in rejecting the Keystone XL network, promised some $3.5 bn to improve the piping infrastructure across the nation.

Surprise surprise, it never happened. But of course.

3. Quote : 'Within the (energy) industry...they don’t need grants; they need permit and [regulatory] certainty.”

The private companies that build and manage the infrastructure were unable to obtain government approvals, due to onerous regulations and bureaucratic interference.
4. As late as August 2016, Obama himself was interfering with the ability of the FERC to approve urgent upgrades and approvals on the gas pipeline network.

Yep, you guessed it - Obama was concerned about 'climate change'.

5. In June 2017, POTUS Trump, aware of the urgency used EOs to approve the Keystone XL and Dakota pipelines, as well as (quote):

'three additional actions to expedite environmental reviews for "high priority infrastructure projects," to streamline the permitting process/.
6. '/..for domestic manufacturing and to insist pipeline companies buy materials from U.S. companies.'

Unfortunately, these upgrades will take some time to complete. But at least things are now headed in the right direction.

7. It's ineresting to note that in 2015, when Obama pledged the $3.5 billion (that never arrived) to fix the US gas pipes, he was happy to give BILLIONS to the Iranian mullahs, some in cash on pallets.

Priorities, priorities.
8. In the meantime, we shake our heads at yet another Obama-led disaster and pray for the people of Massachusetts.

Let's hope that there are no deaths and minimal injuries.

And for a better future, under POTUS Trump.
