    She doesn't want to kill the issue, she wants to move the bill forward. Which is probably why she voted for the bill. Same reason Rockerfeller did - move the bill out of committee, and get busy on the hard work of merging with the HELP committee bill and hammering out amendments on the floor of the full Senate, etc etc etc.

    So why is he getting all nuts because we disagree with Snowe. She's a lamer.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Susan Collins Open To Supporting Reform Proposal? Her Office Suggests Otherwise

    Is Senator Susan Collins open to supporting the health care reform proposal in the Senate?

    The Associated Press caused a bit of a stir in Democratic circles this morning by reporting that Collins, the other moderate GOPer from Maine, may be “open” to backing the reform bill, along with Olympia Snowe.

    But Collins’ office sends over the statement that the AP story is based on, and it’s very hard to see how the AP reads it this way. If anything, the statement makes it pretty conclusive that she’ll oppose the final proposal.
