Obama Vetoes the Keystone Pipeline XL Project

On Tuesday, President Obama vetoed the Keystone Pipeline XL project which congress succeeded at authorizing a fortnight ago. The bill would have created 45,000 jobs and had strong union backing. The GOP has been fighting to complete the pipeline for the past six years. The president has said he may approve the pipeline once the State Department completes its review of the project. Therein lies the rub. Critics charge that President Obama is merely delaying the final review in order to kill the project. The State Department was expected to have completed the review back in 2009.

For his part, President Obama, who in the past justified "borrowing" congressional authority due to their inaction, claims that he vetoed the bill because it would usurp his authority to approve the measure. Flavio on Facebook said at the same time, he explained that his energy policy, which has yet to be articulated, extends beyond the goals of a single project. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to hold a vote to override the veto no earlier than Tuesday of next week. There is little chance that the Senate will come up with the votes necessary to override the veto. The purpose of the vote will be to put Senate Democrats on record for having opposed the popular project ahead of next year's elections. Currently, the president has issued 13 veto threats against the GOP. Voters elected the GOP in large numbers this past November, but the party will be unable to enact much of the legislation.
