It was always of great interest to me that one man, the President, could veto the opinions of over 200 other people, Congress. That is a whole lot of power, and that power has vetoed the Keystone Pipeline.

Apparently President Obama immediately vetoed the bill once it got to the White House, not that this was a surprise to anyone. It is only the beginning of the pissing match that is going to ensue between the Democratic President and the Republican-led Congress. The date has already been set to override the President’s veto, March 3rd. But for now, environmentalists have won in the endeavor to end the Keystone Pipeline. But this veto has supposedly means job-loss in Alaska. What do you think?
