  1. Fossil fuels are so 20th century.

    I simply plug in my mobility scooter in the evening, and it’s ready to roll in the morning for a latte and an almond biscotti.

    Even after my late night carousal in the bathhouses, there is still enough juice in my trusty scooter to take me home again.

  2. yet again the GOP blowing smoke up the a$$es of the american people trying to sell a KOCH backed bill as “job creation”… the age of Reagan is dead … when will the GOP become aware of this?

  3. IT’s quite simple now. The president will veto the bill and we will replace the turncoat democratic senators, who were purchased by the Koch’s and big oil interests, in the next primaries.

  4. I knew Susan Collins the fake moderate from Maine would vote yes.

    Way to help the Maine lobster industry senator.

    Just what the Bay of Maine needs more carbon burning to make the lobsters head farther north into colder Canadian ocean water.

  5. When are we going to institute ecotopiahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecotopia.

    Born and raised in Washington, long time resident in Portland….

  6. This was a vote for the base…..it is meaningless.

    I predict that when it goes back to the House it will quietly die, which was the plan to begin with . Otherwise the Senate would not have amended it and force it back to the House.

    If not, it will be vetoed anyway.

    Also, the property rights lawsuits that were just file will be in courts for years to come.

    TransCanada’s building permit expired in June of 2013 and has NOT been renewed yet.

  7. Makes me not want to contribute to the DSCS anymore but only to individual Democratic candidates. I’m so sick of Senate, above all, Democrats who sickeningly routinely vote with the Republican block. There has never been a Democratic block in the Senate and there should be on certain measures. I bet if you asked the Senate Democrats if climate change was real, the same Democrats who voted with the GOP on Keystone would vote “nay.”

  8. For all the Democrats who voted for this bill lost credibility on climate change. And hope people them accountable. When they come for donations.

  9. The way they’re going, Congress will soon be swearing their oath of office with their right hands on the Kochs’ wallet.

  10. Thank you for your great post!

    Susan Collins is NO moderate. She is definitely a Party person. Susan also voted for Citizens United.

    Yes, I live in Maine and have been totally dissatisfied with her “job performance.” Unfortunately people voted her into a fourth term – 24 years.

    I have written to Susan on several occasions to express my opinion and even called her D.C. office. It doesn’t make any different because IMHO, she cares nothing about her constituents but continues to vote her own agenda and Party.

    During a “debate” with an exceptionally well-qualified candidate for Senate last November, she lied several times. Well, in case that’s too harsh a criticism, she gave “misinformation.” I said “No, that’s not true” simultaneously shaking my head.

    Sorry I got off the track there a few minutes.

    We’ve got to keep active, keep informed and to inform others. We need to vote and not give up no matter what!

  11. I just telephoned both senators’ offices and told the staff person to pass my message to:

    Susan Collins – my dissatisfaction for her Keystone vote AND that she needs to do the research;

    Angus King – to thank him for his “Nay” vote.

    I believe they need to know that we are watching them and will remember how they vote.

  12. Sorry to see that both my Senators, Toomey & Casey voted yes. I would expect it from Toomey. He’s as right wing as they come, but Casey disappoints me. What could he be thinking?

  13. I knew Boxer and Feinstein won’t let me down.
    But voting on this was was completely useless and shows how ignorant the tea bag/repub congress is.
    IF this bill ever gets to President Obama’s desk it will be VETOED anyway.

  14. Well, I certainly am disappointed in all those “Dems”, quotes because they are Dems in name only… It’s beyond belief that any thinking, even mildly intelligent person would vote for that disaster waiting to happen. Now, I pray that there are not enough votes to overturn the President’s veto.

  15. wrote to my two Dem Senators from MN. and said thank you for their vote against this bill. Senators and Representatives need to hear good words every now and then.

  16. And of course Ted “Calgary” Cruz and John “Trickle Down” Cornyn voted for Keystone. Can’t wait for the 2016,2018, and 2020 elections to get here so we can finally get rid of Calgary Cruz and Johnny Boy. Maxey Scherr for U.S. Senator 2018 (while Joaquin Castro gets the Texas Governor’s Mansion and Wendy Davis gets the Lt Governor’s gavel) and then Leticia Van de Putte for U.S. Senator in 2020.
