Will the Koch brothers benefit from the Keystone XL pipeline?

8 posts / 0 new

Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee want the Kochs to appear before Congress. On Wednesday – the Committee is expected to hold its first hearing on the Keystone XL pipeline since President Obama officially rejected it last week. And ranking Democratic Member of the Committee Henry Waxman is calling on someone form Koch industries to testify about what type of financial stake the Kochs have in the Keystone pipeline. The Koch brothers have previously denied any financial gain from the pipeline – but according to papers filed with the Canadian Government – a subsidiary of Koch Industries does stand to gain quite a lot from that oil flowing into the United States. And looking at the way bought-off Republicans have reacted to the Keystone pipeline – even threatening to hold tax cuts for millions of middle class Americans hostage unless the President agrees on the pipeline – it’s hard not to wonder if the Kochtopus is lurking somewhere below the surface.

They won't appear themselves, they will send a surrogate like Clarence Thomas or Scalia.

Thom......are there any updates about your article? I would love to see the Koch brothers have to go before Congress and the public. Senator Feinstein and Boxer would turn up the heat!

Yes, they will ... by saving about $2 billion per year by switching to Canadian tarsands from Venezuelan heavy crude.
