    If he did allow it, you'd just be complaining that it's a handout to the Unions (because who do think is going to build the pipeline?)
    Wanna bet? Statitically speaking, only about 20% of the hands building the pipeline would be union hands.

    No one has put aything in place to only raise taxes on the millionaires and billionaires. When the Libbos say, "Bush tax cuts", they mean all of the Bush tax cuts.

    The Libbos have been screaming to abolish the Bush tax cuts. Well, you asked for it, looks like you just might get it.

    You've got to be crazy if you think Republicans are the ones guaranteeing that everyone's taxes are going to go up. Republicans brought spending cuts to the table, Democrats brought over a trillion dollars in tax hikes. Democrats want as large and powerful a government as possible.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    And the nation is fast catching on to the reality that the GOP is there to serve only the wealthy and will hold 90% of this nation hostage to serve their corporate masters.

    The Governor of Nebraska:

    "Many Nebraskans, including myself, support the pipeline, but we are opposed to the route that goes through the Sandhills and over the Ogallala aquifer," Heineman explained. "We ask: Why would you risk an oil spill or leak over the aquifer when TransCanada already has a pipeline route on the eastern side of Nebraska?"

    The Governor of Nebraska, by the way, is a Republican.

    The middle class didn't do all alone. Someone had to put up the jack to pay for it. Gee! Where did that money possibly come from?

    Fine, re-route the ****ing thing.

    Either way, though, this is yet another example of government standing in the way of job creation.

    If this is what Republicans actually believe in, why were there no big budget cuts when they controlled Congress and the White House?

    If you think the Republican Party has your best interests at heart, you are the one who's crazy.

    True, but you didn't see Rockefeller wielding a hammer.

    If you think the rich don't need the middle class (as TurtleDude does), you are sorely mistaken.

    Great re-route it. In the meantime, is Obama just supposed to say "No, **** Nebraska. We're just going to build it there anyway."
