There have already been spills, and a major disaster
The safety of crude-by-rail operations has drawn increased scrutiny since July, when a train carrying crude oil in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, derailed and exploded, killing 47.
The incident was the most striking example among recent oil spills originating from trains, which have become increasingly common.
More than 99 percent of hazardous material shipments reach their destinations without spills, according to the Association of American Railroads.
Yet more crude oil was spilled in American rail incidents in 2013 than in the previous four decades, according to a McClatchy Newspapers analysis of federal data.
I agree with KXL, if for no other reason than to take away a GOP issue designed to divide enviro and energy DEMs .
In my county of Illinois, GOP politicians and farmers are fighting against an oil/gas pipeline.
Just as the Nebraska ranchers and farmers are fighting KXL and the heavy-handed use of eminent domain by Trans-Canada .
Chemists Have Solutions .
the issue just sums up the entire liberal agenda.
entitlement expansion - Priority #1
abortion/gay marriage/(insert cause celeb) - Priority #2

Mitt Romney had an excellent, I thought, North American energy plan which would have benefited and helped secure the continent.
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'."

How anyone with a brain could vote for Cons continues to amaze me.
See I can do hyperbole as well. The problem is you actually think the GOP cares about the people. BOTH the Dems AND the GOP just care about wining their next election no matter the cost to the people.
When YOU wake up and realize reality, you let us know CON.
