What the hell is wrong with Rep. Jim Matheson? He vote to fast-track approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline, the 1,700-mile pipeline that would bring oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

Big Oil and Big Gas has bought our Congress, and Matheson is no different from the Republicans who are in the pockets of the oil and gas industry with their bunkum line about jobs and independence from foreign oil.

This is a Canadian company, and the oil will go on to be bid on in the world oil market. The pipeline does nothing for the domestic energy needs.

Do not believe the politicians and Big Oil lies. Vote out the politicians who vote to fast-track approval of any pipeline. TransCanada Corp., the owner of the Keystone Pipeline, has a record of pipeline oil leaks.
