WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, said Tuesday that she will vote for the Senate Finance Committee's health care bill.
Great news! And she is one of the greatest Republicans on the scene. The Republican party needs alot more Snowes in the party to keep the party going.
Snowe is a modern Judas and should be thrown out from the republican party. The party can not trust her and can not rely of her support anyway.
Snowe for President
"Keep your government out of my Medicare!"
-real quote from Tea Bagger at Health Care Rally.
If you don't get the idiocy, you are clealry misinformed and should not comment on health care reform.
Are we law-abiding, military draft eligible American citizens living in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Guam included in this bill?
Vote her out! She needs to just say no or join the greedy tax and spend Democrats.
Yeah, but with what kind of "caveats?" There really needs to be a trigger for the Public Optin, and I hope there will be. Once the Insurance Thieves refuse to cooperate, we can FINALLY have Medicare for all.
Ok, thanks for the update, CNN.
This was expected.
The sad part is that most people can only sit outside the arena and voice their opion which surely doesn't seem to make a difference to the gators inside the arena.
start refering to her as ex-senator
If it weren't for the few moderate [R]s left, the average congressional [R] IQ would be 10. As it is, its only 25 anyway.
I guess this is good news but seriously, who cares?
I don't care what republicans think, I just want action.
I see comments are moderated - So I will just say that I hope no Republican funds (RNC, GOP, etc) going to her re-election....this is exactly why I will not give to these entities anymore!
As Shakespeare put it "what ever wound did heal but by degrees?"
Healthcare is severely wounded in its current state and this vote will be the first major step in its reform. Obviously a lot of us progressives would like to see a robust public option in the final draft, but we're ever so nearer with the passage of the Baucus bill.
It's nearly certain that they'll be some form of public option in the end.
Thank you Senator Snowe for showing leadership on an issue all Americans care about.
I have come to respect Olympia Snowe, as she has been deliberate, and seems to always vote for her constituents. No surpriese that Maine is not as rooted in conservative fiscal retraint. This is more of an historical time, than we can ever imagine. If this bill passes as is,
we will look back with remorse and contempt for those who pushed this upon America. They simply do not know what they are doing, but
they will come to understand it, then will come the blame game.
Olympia Snowe, you may become as important to our history as Benedict Arnold. Stay tuned...
it's about time! – let's get this ball rolling – VOTE 4 HEALTHCARE FOR ALL NOW!!!
Ms. Snowe. Come on to the Democrats' side. Stop these charade of pretending that you're still a Republican. Even, they don't want you in their Party. You're too intelligent. You will just be banging your head the wall if you believe you can still change this party of ignoramuses from the inside.
Shameful. Time to update your resume, Senator.
Thank you Senator Snowe for caring about all of America and not just your constituency. With all our resources we have in this big,great country of ours it is our moral duty to provide affordable health care for all of our people. Again, sincere thanks! Quinn Oleary
I guess someone was able to come up with enough cash to buy this Republican vote to actually HELP Americans. How rare!
Thank you, Senator Snowe, for your clear vision of the bold action needed to provide adequate healthcare for millions of deserving Americans.
I love Olympia Snowe!
Great!!! Now we can all sit down and have a little tea party. We just need Obama to finally admit that the PUBLIC OPTION will be included in the bill so we can all celebrate!!!! YAY
Well that's a start. I guess.
