    Snowe Looking To Deal On Healthcare

    Public option kicks in if certain health care measures deteriorate.

    Snowe Becomes Key to Health Care Deal -- Political Wire

    Sounds good if these triggers are close to what the status quo is now.

    Devil is in the details of course.

    If Snowe can be persuaded to go along with the Democrats proposals I think Collins will go along with it too. They usually stick together.

    I am going to hold out for the public option. I don't trust anyone in the Republican party right now.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Why is this news? Olympia is the the biggest damn RINO in Congress. She was the second biggest, but Spectre switched parties.

    She also got re-elected with something like 74% of the vote. She is representing us.

    Then quit complaining about using reconciliation to pass with a simple majority vote.

    So what? Charlie Rangel is representing us, too. Teddy represented us, in between Chappaquidic jokes. Getting elected multiple times doesn't give a politician more credibility.
