Override the Keystone veto

Congress must not allow Obama's Keystone rejection to stand

President Barack Obama once again defied the American people by his veto of the Keystone XL pipeline. Over 65 percent of Americans wanted the pipeline to be approved.

There is no good excuse or reason for the Obama administration to carry on their politically motivated agenda to prevent a project that is vital to our economic well being. This pipeline would not only create thousands of needed jobs, but it also would add billions of dollars to our ailing economy.

What a shame that Mr. Obama must place his political interests over the interest of the American people. Congress now needs to drum up enough votes to override this veto as soon as possible as we are only about four or five votes short.
