House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) used Friday’s mixed jobs report as fuel for attacks on President Obama’s energy policies.

Boehner twice mentioned high gasoline prices in a statement on the jobs numbers and pushed GOP plans to authorize construction of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline.

“Republicans have a jobs plan — and a budget — that cuts spending, fixes our tax code, addresses excessive regulations and expands American energy production through projects like the Keystone XL pipeline,” Boehner said.

The BlueGreen Alliance, a coalition of unions and environmentalists, said the weaker-than-expected jobs data shows the need to extend green energy tax breaks and approve transportation legislation.
