Dozens of Dems sent a letter to Clinton seeking assurance that any oil or refined product obtained from the risky pipeline remain available for sale within the U.S. TransCanada already has entered into long-term sales contracts with other multinationals.

This is a hot one. The House Democrats are finally catching on. Even I have known for some time that Transcanada has plans, even contracts, to export this oil. The refineries in Texas are in a free trade zone, so TransCanada won't have to deal with pesky taxes. We get the risk, and to add insult to injury, the prices for gasoline in the Midwest will RISE because of this costly, dirty oil.
