    Did you know that the Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail line, owned by Obama's deep pocketed and extremely generous buddy Warren Buffett, stood to gain the most from cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline.

    Barack Obama recently sacrificed at least 85,000 high paying jobs when he effectively killed the Keystone XL pipeline, but in doing so Obama is also apparently paying back yet another of his big donors.
    DID PRESIDENT OBAMA BLOCK THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE AS A PAYBACK TO HIS BIG CAMPAIGN DONOR?

    Whos is a major Senator from Nebraska that also owns Berkshire Hathaway that owns Burlington Northern...Nelson!

    Who owns the railroad?? That would have hauled oil?

    And what Senator from Nebraska that owns Berkshire Hathaway stock voted to Block Keystone??

    And who was the major donor to the environmental group that were major opponent of Keystone?
    Same guy that the "Buffett Rule" was named after!


    Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
    Shipping oil using tank cars on rail costs about $3 more a barrel than pipeline transport

    it was brought up that the sales of oil coming from the keystone would at least be a start to paying off the debt. the US could export it at a lower cost than OPEC. and the hell with OPEC !!!

    The Keystone XL has not been blocked. To the contrary, construction on the southern end has been approved, and the only stumbling block is rerouting it around environmentally sensitive areas, something that Canada and the US are resolving.

    Obama couldn't block the pipeline from Cushing to the Gulf. He only has the power to block it over international borders.

    So bullshit on Obama. Trans Canada said screw you to him and decided to go south from Oklahoma. He can't stop it.

    And the blocking of the pipeline had nothing to do with environmental issues. All freaking bogus.

    There are over 20,000 miles of pipeline across the Ogallala and over 2,000 miles of it over Nebraska.

    The reason the XL pipeline was killed was because it would of caused gas prices in the Midwest to increase by as much as $0.30. Second the company that would of built the pipeline has 12 oil spills a year in Canada. 3rd their have been only two independent studies on the effects of the pipeline with both finding that due to oil spills and increased gas prices, and other environmental/health factors the pipeline would of hurt the economy.

    It's not killed. You don't have a clue what you are talking about.:lol: Freaking DU talking points really make people look foolish.

    This was to be Keystone Phase III. Phase I and Phase II go to Illinois and to Oklahoma.

    Trans Canada is continuing with the southern leg of the pipeline from Cushing to the Gulf and Obama can't stop them.:D
