Prez Getting Deeper in Keystone Trouble
Why is the president continuing to fight the Keystone Pipeline even after revisions that gave him an excuse to change course? Byron York and Charles Krauthammer don't get it.
This week, the Republican-run Housed passed a transportation bill that includes a provision requiring approval of the pipeline, with 69 Democrats joining in a 293-127 vote.
In the Democratic-controlled Senate, Republican officials say they are close to the 60 votes needed to force a vote on the pipeline.
