    Default "New" Senate business...

    OK boys and girls, here we go. We now have a GOP lead, and majority controlled, Senate scheduled to start "the business of the people" this week. McConnell, the new Senate Majority leader, unlike his predecessor Reid, has said he will open the door to debate in order to arrive at some kind of compromise between the parties on the all important business of the people... OK, good so far....
    It seems one of the first items of business will be the much touted Keystone pipeline... One side says it will be a huge economic windfall for America... The other side says it will be a huge windfall for the oil companies, and the people will suffer the environmental consequences.. This is a subject that Reid wouldn't even allow any discussion on, let alone a vote. McConnell says he will allow the dims to bring amendments to the floor to be added to the GOP initiated action.. OK, good... These amendments will require a 60 vote majority in order to be added to the bill, so the chance of them actually being added are slim, but at least the Senate is actually voting again.. ( in the last two years Reid allowed votes on less than a dozen GOP amendments, and many/most of the bills were never even debated)....
    So, I heard a liberal on TV say his party will back the pipeline IF part of the bill says the refined GAS must remain here for American consumption to keep OUR prices down and help the middle class... Again, OK...Sounds good to me.... I'm not stupid enough to believe it, but it sounds good... Here we have a liberals state of mind that says they can somehow determine where the refined gas came from. Company XYZ has been refining oil on the Gulf coast for decades, oil from all over hell, brought in by ship, rail, other pipelines, trucks, etc., and the refined gas going out in all directions by those same methods... So I say to the GOP, sure, let them throw that into the bill if they're really dumb enough to think there is any way to actually control where the XL finished product goes...
    All of the discussion/debate may very well be for naught, because obama will likely veto the bill to satisfy the environuts that put him in office... BUT, can the Senate muster 67 votes to override the veto? McConnell needs 13 libtards to do that, maybe??
    I know McConnell, from the COAL state of Kentucky, is going after most, if not all of the EPA's illegal regulations that have crippled the coal industry in his, and many other states.
    It's going to be something to watch again, unlike when Reid basically brought the Senate to a dead stop and CSPAN was doing "book reports" instead of following the Senate live..
    I spent the better part of 3 years listening to CSPAN in the background while working in the Bullhead shop. I guess I'll have to wire up an old TV outside here so I can listen while digging weeds and burning brush...
    Oh yeah, remember Reid broke the Senate rules to change the Senate rules?? The "Nuclear" option, ( a simple majority, 51 votes, instead of 60, to pass certain appointments and spending bills).. is still alive and well, but somebody else is in the drivers seat now... Hey Harry, eat rotten shit and die!!!

    I don't trust McConnell or Boner to speak for the people. Career politician RHINO's!!!
    We'll see if they can do more than Reid did, which wasen't much, but line is own pockets while darn near 400 bills lay dead on his desk. He was too busy cheerleading for Barry.

    Repubs need to send Barry a bill every week with the greatest stuff for Americans ever thought of, and at the bottom of the bill it will have - " repeal Obamacare".
    He will veto it cause there is no line item veto, and the people will see that Barry just cares about "his signature bill" and not anything for the good of the Country.
    Keep pounding him with bills to veto so the people can see who this fraud really is, and his agenda is stronger than helping the American people!!!!

    Let me guess that the democrats are sorry they passed the nuclear option at this point?

    Best news for them is that republicans don't throw their weight around like democrats do when they have the majority. (see Obamacare)

    Oh yeah, those libtards that warned Harry that the dims won't be in power forever are now giving him the old "I told you so" routine... But, ol' senile Harry, much like his syphilis brained hero Adolph, was so overwhelmed with power he refused to acknowledge reality... I really, really hope McConnell treats the wannabe emperor Reid as shitty as Reid treated all the minority Republicans.. Reid deserves as much respect as a used piece of toilet paper. Oh wait, maybe not that much.....

    " they can somehow determine where the refined gas came from."

    Couldn't this be determined on a percentage basis? example: If 10% of the volume of crude was from the xl pipeline then 10% of the refined gasoline should be retained here. Surely they can manage the crude inventory that well cant they?

    Sadly, the nuclear option will not help Republicans since the Kenyan has veto power. Let's hope for a party change in the White House in 2016.

    Well McConnell needs to be replace by Gowdy. Bone-head the RINO needs to be replaced as well.

    And the liberal saying we don't need to export refined petroleum needs to have his head examined. Just where does he thing all the crude on Buffets rail going to the southern refineries is going? Export.. HELLO!!! So $2 gas isn't cheap enough?

    Fuck Harry Reid. Now he want's to compromise, but when the libtards were in control, he wouldn't budge. Asshole! You'd think his exercising accident would have knocked some sense into him, but nooooooo.
