Cochran, Wicker on Keystone: The fight is not over

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) –
Republicans did not get the votes to override President Obama’s veto of the Keystone pipeline. They needed 67 votes but fell short by five…

…U.S. Senators from Mississippi Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker both voted to override the President’s veto.

“Senators had the opportunity to put job creation and America’s energy security above partisan interests, but Senate democrats instead sided with President Obama and far-left environmental activists,” Wicker said. “By doing so, they have denied jobs to tens of thousands of Americans who are actively looking for work. This fight, however, is not over.”…

…Republicans could revive the issue by possibly attaching language to a measure that the President would find hard to veto.
