WASHINGTON (AP) — Defying the Republican-run Congress, President Barack Obama rejected a bill Tuesday to approve construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, wielding his veto power for only the third time in his presidency.

It’s nice to see the process actually working again. You know… where the legislature actually passes legislation and the president actually has to sign or veto it. Now if we can get back to senators having to actually conduct filibusters, we’d be a step closer to a functioning legislative process.
