The pipeline will create 10's of thousands of jobs and bring much needed oil to the U.S. and if not approved Canada will build the pipeline but will build it to their West coast ....to supply China. Personally it seems like a no brainer which I thought most democrats in Congress having met at least the minimum standard of having said organ would have got it but as usual, I over estimated them ....again. I suspect the reduction of unemployment benefits from close to 2 years to just over a year troubles them as well and the Doc fix would likely have been approved by democrats in any case but because its attached to this bill it seems a good many elderly may well lose their Doctors next year. They tell us all the time how they are all about jobs and the middle class well Harry, here's your chance ...put up or shut up.
