House, Senate to vote on Keystone XL pipeline

November 13, 2014

For the first time in the six-year fight over the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, both houses of Congress will hold a vote on the proposed project, giving each side in a Louisiana Senate election a chance to boost its candidate.

The two lawmakers locked in the runoff contest, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) and Rep. Bill Cassidy (R), seized control of the congressional agenda Wednesday, extracting assurances from House and Senate leaders that votes will be held to bypass President Obama’s authority and authorize construction of the pipeline.

A large showing of Democratic support for the pipeline could complicate the administration’s decision-making process, given the party’s dismal showing at the polls last week. Environmentalist allies of the president are solidly against the project and have been doggedly lobbying the administration against approving it.

    It certainly isn’t your first language. Do you actually speak English or is someone writing this for you? Stop talking out of your asshole as all liberals like you do

    I Seigel. Any buying energy from terrorists is the key to energy independence does you moron!

      Is English your first language? Do you need a translator?

    Same oil liberal bullshit, I Seigel. Why don’t you have better ideas rather than spew the same lies over and over again?

    1. I Seigel says:

      Lies? Please quote the “lie” that I’m telling, and then please add your version of the truth.
      The “lie” is that the Keystone has anything to do with “energy independence” for the US.

    I do hope that some of the democrats in the senate smarten up and vote jobs for Americans and the path to energy independence from the terrorists in the middle east who we now buy oil from. Stop with the lame excuses.

      More bilge water being spewed by this Koch Brothers puppet.

      “Jobs for Americans”? Huh? You think this is a jobs bill? It’s going to mean work for a couple thousand construction workers for maybe 2 years. Big deal. Why not put those same people to work rebuilding roads and bridges, or building a high-speed rail between LA and San Francisco, or Dallas to Houston?

      “Energy independence from the terrorists”? Huh? We’re going to build this thing to allow the Canadians to get their dirty oil to the Gulf, where it will be refined and sold to the world. How is that going to gain us “energy independence”?

      If you’ve noticed lately, America IS rapidly becoming energy independent, and there’s moves to sell American oil on world markets, specifically to Ukraine. And the price of oil has come WAY down, and is predicted to go lower. Even CNBC has said the economic reasons for Keystone have disappeared.

      Stop parroting the propaganda that the Koch Brothers and Big Oil keep putting out.
