As expected, an energy efficiency bill failed in the Senate on Monday, which makes a separate Senate vote on the Keystone XL oil pipeline unlikely before the November election.

Instead of taking care o nation's business politicians from both parties are on eternal fundraising mode and nothing gets accomplished.

The longer the Democrats withhold permission to build the Keystone pipeline, and create thousands of jobs the greater it becomes a reason to vote Republican in November. Union people want to work. The last Union magazine called for workers to vote, but did not mention a political party. My bet is they are giving the Democrats a way to save face if they vote for the pipeline, or give their people an out if they vote Republican. Democrats like to think they own the Unions, but it is the other way around. Their money is good anywhere.

All is going according to Harry Reid's plan..... He won't allow votes on the Keystone pipeline. Won't allow jobs Bills to be heard. Ties up tax legislation with procedural delays. He is doing his level best to collapse the economy under Obama's watch. Harry Reid MUST be a closet racist..... Like most lie-berals.

Why doesn't Canada just build the their pipeline of their tar-sand across their own country to their own refineries outside Vancouver for their Chinese investors?
Oh right, the inevitable environmental disaster.
Smart to try and foist it off on our soil.
