This elephant, despite being arthritic, is repeatedly being forced to give rides. This must stop. How long will we go on making animals suffer for profit and entertainment?
AllPolitics reports that President Obama has just vetoed the KXL Pipeline authorization bill that was passed by both branches of the Republican-controlled congress. The news was delivered in the form of a message read on the floor of the Senate.
This is a big victory, but it is likely temporary. The Republican leadership in both houses will likely move to pass the bill again and possibly poison the well like the did with the Homeland Security Department funding bill by attached revocation of the president’s executive orders on immigration. We must be vigilant and prepared to fight again.
