WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, said Tuesday that she will vote for the Senate Finance Committee's health care bill.
I like this woman more and more every day!
I applaud Senator Olympia Snowe for taking a stand for healthcare reform. She cares about what Americans desperately need. Go Senator Snowe, Yes We Can!!!
Good for her. I just hope that there is a public option in that bill.
The GOP breathes. Perhaps it isn't dead, or transformed to a zombee, yet.
Thank you Senator Snowe
Good for her. Finally a republican who puts the needs, wants of our country over big business. She deserves a Medal of Honor.
public option.........................Oct 13, 2009................R I P
Is anyone suprised?
What Health Care Bill ? It doesn't even exist yet. How can any Senator on this committee say something like that when they haven't even seen the final draft that will be forwarded. This is beyond arrogant, it borders on negligent.
Putting the people of America first – this is why she gets re-elected. Maybe now the USA can join other civilized countries in providing for our people. With insurance available prevention can be increased and costs will go down
Ohoooooooo, Rush is stompin mad now.
The biggest threat to our National Security isn't Iran, Afghanistan, China or Russia, but the deficit spending taking place in Washington...and they just won't stop.
I don't care what bill she votes on. Whichever one it is, it better have a public option. Not a trigger, but a PUBLIC OPTION. I'm sure Sen. Snowe must be aware of the rate hikes going on in Maine. Only way to bring those rates down is with a PUBLIC OPTION. As a healthcare professional, a PUBLIC OPTION is the best way to drive down cost.
Of course she will, She is on the pay roll of big insurance
Good for her!! She's proving she's a leader not a follower like most Republicans. GO Snowe!!
Snowe is a leader, not a follower like the rest of Republicans!!!!
Finally! A voice of reason in the Republican Party..get it done people! Lives are lost every minute! Why is the US the only country that cannot get it together for the better of it's people??
No surprise here. Snowe is a RINO always has been and always will be.
Ruh roh! Here come the Snowe bashers. Good for her. It's just too bad that the bill is a cobbed together comprimise containing no real reform. Oh well, I don't know why I expected better. Congress never does anything until a huge crisis explodes. Guess we'll have to wait for the complete collapse of our healthcare system before our congress critters take this seriously. Have a nice day!
wow, it's a sad day when Snowe caves
Thank You Senator Olympia Snowe R-Main. You Are A True Voice And Nagotiator In Congress. It's Just Too Bad I Can't Say The Same For Others In The Republican Party!
Wonder what the Dems promised her in private to do this. That has been amply demonstrated as the way these corrupt Dems operate.
Doesn't matter anyway, she is a Dem first who feels a need (for payoff) to hide behind Repub clothing. She is a spineless and corrupt disgrace.
Awesome. Great to see at least ONE Republican using their brains.
She votes with them enough, why doesn't she just join their party. Maine needs to wake up.
