Hmmm....we are led to believe by Beohner and company that this project is so important as to to be worthy of holding up legislation that would extend middle class tax cuts. Doesn;t Mr. Boehner understand yet that it is the midlle class that drives this economy. It is the middle class that creates jobs through demand for products. It is not 1% hoarderes that do so. Ok, back to said project. From where I sit at best there would be ony a few billionaires from Texas and a couple in Canada who would really benefit from the proposed pipeline. a FEW FACTS: Inventories in energy products are swelling to record levels Demand for energy products is increasingly going down Encouraging our neighbors to perform fracturing of the geo system before all the facts are in is not very neighborly Exposing all the states that this pipeline has to run through without all the facts of the risks is cheap cronyism at best. Obama has it right on this one and the Republicans look like the same ole' let's suck up to the cash position. It ain't gonna hurt to do proper studies. Quit your greedish bullshit Republicans.
