Liberal and Latino group blast Landrieu, likes US Senate block of Keystone
 

landrieu-tea-party Below are statements from a liberal group praising the US Senate’s vote today to block the Keystone Pipeline and another statement from a Latino group also blasting Senator Mary Landrieu for her efforts to pass the pipeline.

 

FYI -- Following the news that Sen. Landrieu’s bill to force approval of Keystone XL could not muster the 60 votes needed to pass, CREDO, a national progressive group that has been fighting to stop the pipeline for years, reacted to today’s vote:

“This is the president’s decision, and he is going to reject Keystone XL, as he steps up and at long last starts using his executive powers to combat climate change,” said Elijah Zarlin, CREDO’s senior campaign manager. “All this Senate vote proves is that a handful of Democrats are standing on the wrong side of history to join Mary Landrieu in a last ditch effort to protect the oil industry's profits." 

CREDO has been a leader in the movement to block the Keystone XL pipeline, organizing more than 500,000 public comments, 2.5 million petition signatures, tens of thousands of calls, and participating in peaceful civil disobedience. CREDO also has funded civil disobedience and other anti-Keystone XL organizing by groups including 350.org, Rainforest Action Network, and Friends of the Earth.

Latinos Cheer Senate Rejection of KXL, Urge Obama to End the Political Circus

Statement from Presente.org Managing Director Mariana Ruiz on Sen. Landrieu’s failed push to force through Keystone XL in the US Senate:

"Sen. Landrieu’s quest to turn Latinos into a personal punching bag was finally pushed back upon by Senate Democrats tonight in their vote to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. From pushing for increased deportations of our family members to fighting for more extreme weather and climate change through toxic pipelines like Keystone XL, Sen. Landrieu has spend an embarrassing amount of time trying to hurt Latino families in her quest for power.  

"Thankfully, Senate Democrats showed some sense tonight by voting against Keystone XL, now we urge President Obama to join suit and reject this toxic pipeline once and for all for Latinos, for the climate, and for all of us."

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
