OUTRAGEOUS: Obama Vetoes Keystone Pipeline

Despite its high popularity among voters, President Obama has once again vetoed a Keystone XL Pipeline bill. This time he claims that the bill violates his “executive privileges.”

Once again we see that Obama stands against jobs for Americans as well as energy programs.

President Obama vetoed a bill Tuesday that would have approved the Keystone XL pipeline, making good on a threat to reject a proposal embraced by Republicans as a jobs measure but opposed by environmentalists as contributing to climate change.

“The presidential power to veto legislation is one I take seriously,” Obama said in his veto message. “But I also take seriously my responsibility to the American people. And because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest — including our security, safety, and environment — it has earned my veto.”

It was only the third veto of his presidency, but likely to be the first in a series of vetoes as he parries a Republican-controlled Congress in the last two years of his presidency. The White House has already issued 13 formal veto threats so far this year — the most ever at this point in a new Congress since President Reagan first started issuing written veto threats in 1985.

This is nothing but a payoff to the extreme, left-wing, anti-modernity, Econ-Nazis who donated millions to his re-election campaign.
