Vote Summary By Senator Name By Vote Position By Home State

The White House promptly declared that Mr. Obama would veto the measure — which would force the approval of a proposed 1,179-mile oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico — in a stroke of the pen that is expected to be the opening shot in a series of vetoes of Republican measures.

The Senate voted 60 to 36 in favor of building the pipeline. 62-36

Passage of the Senate bill sends the measure back to the House, which passed a largely similar bill earlier this month. House leaders are still deciding whether to simply pass the Senate bill as it is, or to hold a conference merging the House and Senate bills into a new bill, which would then be voted on by each chamber.

    Excuse me if I sound surprised. Joe Donnelly voted for the Keystone bill.That is a first for him. He has been a Obama brown noser since Obama got into the office. Did he finally see the signs? I doubt it.

    Ok just send it. So he vetoes it. It’s late and I be tired, too tired to look up the rules. But I think it’s 2/3 to override…of those present and voting. So maybe not need 67. Can’t maybe the weather service predict snow and ice so that a certain bunch can’t make it in to be present and vote. Or slip on their exercise machine and be bummed up and not make it in. Or held by ISIS for ransom and not make it in. lol

    Thanks for sharing this; it appears as though everyone in New Hampshire held to the party line. The two Democrats voted against it and the two Republicans voted for it.

      Looks like we won’t get a super majority. But let him veto it with that damn pen of his.
