President Barack Obama and the Democrats passed the most expensive, far-reaching, and intrusive legislation in history, Obamacare, in just one day, without knowing what it would do or involve or cost.

Remember Nancy Pelosi's quote, "We have to pass it to find out what's in it." Now after more than a year of examination, the EPA says it will take another year to make a decision on the Keystone Pipeline. They have to study every possible consequence and effect it may have.

Why aren't the Democrats saying, "Build it and we will find out what the results will be?"

There will be jobs created, less dependence on foreign oil, and added security for the United States. Throw in the added benefit that it can't bankrupt the country, and it's a no-brainer.
