Obama Promises to Veto Keystone XL Poison Pill
As you know, President Obama has postponed his decision to approve or disapprove the Keystone XL pipeline until after the 2012 election. In retaliation, Congress introduced a bill to take away the president’s authority to make the Keystone XL decision, and transfer that authority to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Last week, Rep. Lee Terry (R—Inbred) threatened to attach this bill to the payroll tax holiday package that’s slo-o-o-owly wending its way through Congress.
And now Obama has pledged to veto the Republicans’ poison-pill attempt to ram the Keystone XL pipeline up America’s butt. Obama said:
“Any effort to try to tie Keystone to the payroll tax cut I will reject. If the payroll tax cut is attached to a whole bunch of extraneous issues, then it’s not something that I’m going to accept.”
You go Guy. Keep standing up to the Republican sleazebags.
