Today’s failed vote is just another example of a corrupt Congress trying to please its Big Oil Benefactors. Nothing more, nothing less. Keystone XL backers continue to trot out the same tired talking points spoon-fed to them by the industry. Meanwhile the facts remain the same: Keystone XL fails the climate test and should be rejected.
Fossil fuel funded politicians in Congress should take note – when the President of the United States says he is going to do something, he follows through.
The Senate has voted to approve Keystone XL, and has chosen to once again side with Big Oil’s money over our climate and our future.
