The House passed by 266-153 a bill to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. While the Keystone Pipeline is a Republican agenda being billed inaccurately as a “Jobs Bill”, 28 House Democrats voted yes.

Frank Thorp, Capitol Hill producer and reporter at NBC News reported the names of the 28 House Democrats who voted for the bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline:

So, their full names and states:

Brad Ashford, Nebraska
Sanford Bishop, Georgia
Robert Brady, Pennsylvania
CheriBustos, Illinois
James Clyburn, South Carolina
Jim Cooper, Tennessee
Jim Costa, California
Henry Cuellar, Texas
Mike Doyle, Pennsylvania
Gwen Graham, Florida
Al Green, Texas
Gene Green, Texas
Shelia Jackson Lee, Texas
Daniel Lipinski, Illinois
Dave Loebsack, Iowa
Sean Patrick Maloney, N.Y.
Patrick Murphy, Florida
Rick Nolan, Minnesota
Donald Norcross, N.J.
Collin Peterson, Minnesota
Cedric Richmond, Louisiana
Kurt Schrader, Oregon
David Scott, Georgia
Terri Sewell, Alabama
Albio Sires, N.J.
Marc Veasey, Texas
Filemon Vela, Texas
Tim Walz, Minnesota

The White House confirmed that President Obama is still planning to veto this bill, citing the state department report and the need for “thorough consideration of complex issues.” The Keystone Pipeline will create 35 permanent jobs, which falls vastly short of being a real “jobs bill” in spite of how Republicans are selling it.

This is a list of oil sellouts.
