Very bad trade

Louisiana Runoff 2014

What’s left of the environment for Mary Landrieu?

Legislation to approve the Keystone XL pipeline cleared a procedural hurdle in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, setting up a vote on the project next week.

Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu, who faces a runoff vote in Louisiana on Dec. 6, had pushed for vote on Thursday on the bill.

Her Republican opponent, U.S. Representative Bill Cassidy, pushed for a vote on a similar bill his chamber, as each competed to support TransCanada Corp’s pipeline that would send some 800,000 barrels per day of Canadian oil sand petroleum to refineries in Texas.

One thought on “Very bad trade

  1. Landrieu and Cassidy are the same people in different color clothing. Landrieu has been pushing to have the XL pipeline approved for years. She’s in the pocket of the big oil and chemical companies and has been since she began her political career. Who really cares if she’s defeated? One less Blue Dog to have to contend with.
