…….while 90% of poor and unemployed “BLACKS”, that can’t afford gas for their cars to even look for jobs, will AGAIN vote for Barack Hussein Obama….Wake up, you do NOT have to accept this and vote this looser out of office because as you can see by reading this article he does NOT have yours or mine best interest at heart. These Lib’s think more of “spotted owls” and the “Caribou” than tens of thousands of high paying jobs AND over 20,000 construction jobs. I think his plan is to wait and see how this election goes and if it’s not in his favor he will then instruct all Democrats in the Senate to approve this right before the election…..I hope you voters will look beyond this kind of ‘political’ maneuvering ( BULLSHIT ) and while you are home, jobless and poor, Obama & Michelle are flying back and forth from Hawaii on the money you used to have!……Papa Mike
The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.
With gas prices at record levels…
Senate Democrats rejected the Keystone Pipeline and drilling in ANWR yesterday in a single vote. EVERY DEMOCRAT, except for Senator Begich from Alaska, voted against the legislation that would increase American oil production.
The Pioneer Press reported:
The Senate on Tuesday resoundingly rejected a sweeping measure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other protected areas to oil drilling, as well as to approve construction of the Keystone pipeline project.
Tuesday’s vote was the first time in four years that the Senate has voted on a measure including ANWR drilling, and it failed miserably. The proposal needed 60 votes to pass; it only received 41 votes in favor, with 57 senators against.
Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts pushed the measure as an amendment to the bill that funds transportation projects across the nation.
Obama and Senate Democrats blocked the Keystone Pipeline last week, too.
