    35 permanent jobs, about 1,400 temp. That’s about the same number generated that came from the natural gas pipeline coming through our area. Now that they’ve got it this far, the plan is to take the Wyoming gas on to the coast, liquify it, and ship it to China. Same thing planned for the refined product frorm Keystone, but not just to China.. just not for here in the U.S..

    That’s a bunch of bullpucky everyone knows the Keystone project only serves Trans Canadas interests, it does not serve the American people’s interests it only saddles us with the consequences of the Trans Canadians schemes for more money.
    This project is just another BP disaster in the works and we dont even get access to the tar sands oil they want to pump over our country we just get to clean up any messes they create by ignoring the leaks.

    It was the Dems that brought it up to a vote.

    @Rad-ish

    Ok: Why was that? And why did they take so many years to bring it to a vote? You can do this, you know why!
    .
    Was it because they were trying to save a Senate seat, yes it was.

    @dtroutma

    A major shift of moving jobs out of the Middle East and you think it is only 35 jobs. Yeah.

    “A major shift of moving jobs out of the Middle East…”
    Please expand on that premise.

    Where it is used is not important. Oil is fungible.

    “It was the Dems that brought it up to a vote.”
    Landrieu – she generally votes more like a Republican, so she should switch parties like others have before.
    =
    “And then voted against it.”
    Those that voted AGAINST Keystone are following what the Democratic base wants. It is about time there are more Dems that follow the party issues rather than being Republican-light (aka corporations over people).

    @joaquinxx

    Ha but the profits for Trans Canada are huge unfortunately we don’t see a drop of that oil Ora dime in taxes from it.
    We do get stuck with the mess when something goes wrong though.

    Now they have a new place to work. Reducing a chance of issues in the middle east.
    .
    I know a little about this ever since I was a kid I knew people who’s fathers worked in the middle east. I was living in Oklahoma where everybody knows someone in the oil business. We spent 20 billion on the Saudi Oil industry alone with American Labor. The have communities like Ameraco in Saudi where Americans live.
    .
    It is not so much today but there are still a lot of Americans making 100,000 dollar jobs. People go there to get a head start in life.
    .
    Yeah keystone is a good thing, if we do not get the benefits of the project it is our own fault. Canada waited years to make the deal with us and we did not build the thing and yes going back to Pres. Bush.
