The Reps should be behind it 100% and require no concessions. That's why they're threatening to veto it. This is, after all, a tax cut, or at least an extension of one. If they're willing to let it expire, they should be equally willing to let other tax cuts expire (specifically the bush ones, which we all know isn't so).

    I'm actually mostly for approving the pipeline, but I object to this bill more on principal than content. Tax cuts and the pipeline aren't really related, and I'm of the opinion that bills going through congress should pertain to only a single subject at a time. In other words, the Reps can negotiate concessions from the Dems in this bill, but only if those concessions are related to taxes. Likewise, if concessions need to be made to get the pipeline approved, those concessions should be related to environmental protection.
    I thought the Dems were all about, "compromise".

    what's the point of compromising with ideologues who refuse to compromise with anyone?

    From what I understand this bill gives Democrats everything they asked for (payroll tax relief, extension of unemployment insurance, Social Security/Medicare) but requires the President to make a decision on the Keystone pipeline within 60 days instead of putting it off until the next election. Why is Harry Reid calling this bill "dead" and why is Obama threatening veto? Is the Keystone pipeline such a contentious issue that the Democrats would veto the other concessions made by Republicans? Do the Democrats/Liberals on this board support this bill or are you against it?

    It just goes to show that for the Dems/Libbos, agenda takes priority over the well being of the country.

    How is making a decision to allow a pipeline project to proceed and create jobs a, "poison pill"?

    right, that's why the GOP said that the most important thing for them to accomplish during Obama's first administration, was to get rid of Obama.

    Then you agree with Republicans when they refuse to compromise with democratic ideologues then ??

    Which is what the losing party is going to do in 2012...no matter who wins.

    we don't pay Congressmen & Senators to spend four-years focusing just on the next Presidential election, and getting nothing else done.

    but apparently, this is ok for the GOP.
