In the final analysis this is government of, by, and for the people, not a group of oil-drenched Koch-whores in Congress
GOP Senators killed amendments requiring Keystone oil be kept in the U.S., and mandating that the pipeline be built with U.S. steel.
Be assured of one thing. There will be a Keystone XL pipeline in your future; your very near future. The Republicans want it. The blue dogs want it. The State Department has blessed most of it.
Krystal Ball helpfully refuted such falsehoods, such as the pipeline will lead to lower gas prices or energy independence, the coup de grace came when she quoted a State Department report regarding the number of jobs that will be created by the project.
At roughly 3:00 PM EST on the last day of January, the NY Times graced my email inbox with the headline, "Report may ease way to approval of Keystone pipeline."
This amazing aerial footage of the Arkansas oil spill should make Americans question why Republicans are touting Keystone as a 'no brainer'.
After the president mentioned climate change in his inaugural address, 44 Republicans and 9 Democrats responded by sending a letter to Obama demanding immediate approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.
The President and Democrats could protect the environment and Americans' health if they informed the people that Canadian tar sand is not coming to America, but through it to China.
