  1. Obama Vetoes Keystone XL Bill

    The president axed plans yesterday for an 875-mile oil pipeline, using his third-ever veto. Republicans, fed up after six years of debate on the issue, held off on their Keystone bill until Tuesday to avoid rejection while Congress was on recess. But it made no difference: Obama pulled out his red pen, as expected, and admonished the GOP for trying to circumvent the approval process. Republicans will now try to muster a two-thirds majority — an unlikely prospect — to override the veto.
