President Obama is twisting Democratic arms to stop the Keystone pipeline, which when built will end billionaire Warren Buffetts railroad monopoly on shipping oil from the Bakken Oil Field in North Dakota. The billionaire investor is the second richest man in the nation and an ardent supporter of this regime. So obvious is President Obamas opposition to allowing the pipeline to be built on his watch, that even CNN noticed.
A razor close vote is expected in the Senate Thursday on a Republican amendment to bypass the Obama administrations objections and approve the Keystone XL pipeline, Senate aides from both parties told CNN. Democratic aides, however, expressed some optimism the provision would be defeated.
President Obama lobbied wavering Democrats by phone to shore up Democratic support for his position, a senior Democratic source told CNN. It could be embarrassing for the White House if a large number of Democrats voted to overturn the administrations Keystone policy, which has been hotly debated as gas prices continue to rise during this election year. Several Democrats, including moderates up for re-election and those from oil producing states, support the Keystone pipeline but are torn whether to split with the president.

God damn him to burning infernal stinking squalid hell for ever and ever.

What an ugly aprtnership.
Buffett received $17 billion from TARP by proxy. His firms received $95 billion of TARP. His personal share of that TARP was $7B / $26B * $95B equals $17 billion.
After passing through “bankster beard” corporations all bailouts ultimately wind up in the hands of real live human being(s).
While workers trade the fruit of their labor for dollars privileged people receive freshly created dollars for doing nothing. Buffett ranks as privileged among privileged.
