Pretty disgusting...and downright unAmerican, unPatriotic...favoring a foreign corporation over American workers. We see where their loyalties are.

Proof yet again that the two capitalist parties collaborate on passing the corporate agenda over and against the needs of the American people. What a perfect scheme! Both parties can claim that they just had to vote for something they say they are against in order to get the part that they wanted. And they want to put American workers over a barrel by throwing the bone of an improved, but still inadequate minimum wage at them. Thus, the elites get what they want...more corporate profits... while the workers will be made to sacrifice the future for their children and this planet just for a few extra silver coins.

Don't fall for it. What good is an increase in the minimum wage if the climate is changed so radically is it not fit to sustain modern civilization?

How low, Angelika.....when they finally come and say they are Fascists and we no longer, as human beings, matter in the least. Of course, that will be when the air is no longer breathable, the food no longer edible, the water no longer drinkable and all the wildlife in these areas are completely gone. Which, if they get their way.....won't be long.

"The entire situation is growing increasingly pathetic. All of the available research tells us that the pipeline will be a drain on our economy, it will do nothing to spur job growth, and it will only increase the United Statesí dependence on foreign oil, raise our fuel prices and contribute to climate change.

But our elected officials donít care about those facts, they only care about where the money for their next campaign will come from." - Exactly.

This doesn't surprise me. One of these has nothing to do with the other of course; showing yet again, that teapublicans have no shame. Their corporate masters have given them marching orders and the people they represent can go straight to hell.

Unfortunately, as practically every media outlet is corporately owned, the American people hear nothing but lies and propaganda.

When it comes to money it it amazing how horrible people can become. Shame on Congress for being so damned greedy, and the corporations, well they always suck.

Great comments by so many people. It's always about greed. I don't know how these people sleep at night. Disgusting and despicable and we have to keep speaking out about this or it will just get worse . . . . .

Well, among the players in this game are the Koch Brothers so this is hardly a surprise.

Maybe we could dress the brothers up like little girls and send them to Nigeria.

It's diabolical--like asking a parent to choose which child will be sacrificed. As more and more citizens are hurt by Republicans, one can only hope their support erodes, enabling more and better Democrats.
