Vote to Override Obama’s Veto of Keystone Pipeline Fails, But These Eight Democrats Voted Against Obama

Bowing to the pressure of socialist, enviro-Nazis, Barack Hussein Obama vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline despite that both houses of Congress passed the jobs/energy bill and most Americans approve of the project. This week the Senate failed to override the veto but eight Senators voted against Obama.

The Hill reported the list of the eight Democrat Senators who defied Obama.

The Senate failed on Wednesday to override President Obama’s veto of legislation approving the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, falling five votes short of the two-thirds majority needed in a 62-37 vote.

It’s the first time Congress has voted on whether to override a veto from Obama and could be a sign of things to come with Republicans in charge of the House and Senate.

Eight Democrats voted with Republicans to override Obama: Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mark Warner (Va.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Bob Casey Jr. (Pa.), Michael Bennet (Colo.), Tom Carper (Del.) and Jon Tester (Mont.).

Well, good for them, anyway. Time to put more pressure on these eight and the rest.
