She is solely responsible for the Health Care Reform Law. Without her vote the bill doesnt get out of the senate finance committee and we wouldnt be facing this Liberal Democrat Europeanization of America via Health Care law.
Now Democrats want to permanently bailout the financial institutions which incidentally they demonized as the bad guys responsible for the global financial meltdown (but were only to big to fail), and now who is it that Democrats look to so that they can proceed with the one Republican vote need to put their plans into action? Why the Senator from Maine Olympia Snowe thats who.(see story)(and here)
By gosh with Republicans like Sen. Snowe who needs Democrats?

Did the people in her state want her to vote for the health care bill?
She is a Republican?
Gawd, I wish someone would offer themselves as replacements to her and her sister.
She’s a Maverick...
They don’t care. They just want a mommy-figure to take care of things while they go lobstering.
What a stupid assertion. The vote was 14-9. Without Snowe it would have been 13-10. Nothing like completely discrediting yourself in the first paragraph.
Sign up here to piss on her grave after she departs. Avoid the long lines and sign up NOW!
If Simpson sides with the democrats instead of Ryan and advocates accepting this unconstitutional power grab by financing it with a VAT, it will be like throwing a bucket of cold water on the republican base. McConnell better make that clear to Simpson. And someone better make that clear to McConnell.
I agree she's a RINO and needs to go.
But was her vote really needed to move the bill out of the Democrat majority committee?
People do not realize how stupid Olympia Snowe is. That she got her seat in the senate by the death of her husband. That she is manipulated by smarter people around her. But mostly that she is stupid.
...her vote was NOT needed.
olympia snow(job) is such a loser. She and her twin lib collins need to go. Hey, Maine-sters...put down your lobster traps and moose-hunting gear long enough to think. These two lib/rinos need to go.
There is plenty of blame to go around without Pres Bush ruling like a Centrist Democrat there would not have been the bloodbath in 08 giving Democrats the Senate which gave us HC. Yes lots of folks to blame here and those fingers should point alot toward abandoning common sense principles that we should have stood for.
<< People do not realize how stupid Olympia Snowe is. >>
Yesterday, I got a letter in the mail from the RNC requesting money. In the column where it asks you how much you’re giving, I wrote:
“O,as in Olympia Snowe. I don’t support RINO’s.”
Sadly, we need to replace 2 in AR, 1 in MO, 1 in FL, and many in the plain states before we can worry about her. Why are there any democrat senators in red states should be the question.
her vote was needed to make it look like this stinker had
all the GOP shares democrat failure when a bill is “bipartisan”- except the GOP gets all the blame by the democrats - that’s why Nan and Harry with their majorities, fight so hard to ridicule and bribe Republicans into voting for this crap
Didn’t Olympia hold out on the “Finanicial Reform Bill”?
Maybe she figured out she was played, since I don’t think obama has called, written, or sent flowers since that vote, and no more dinners at the WH
Sorry, I disagree.
If Snowe is replaced, she will be replaced by a communist.
The great experiment of replacing RINOs with communists has been underway for 15 months.
How’s it working out?
Maine is so liberal, both political parties are liberal, can’t we just give Maine to Canada?
All bill need one vote from the opposing party look it up and you can drop the apology in my in basket thank you!
“Gawd, I wish someone would offer themselves as replacements to her and her sister”
There are plenty of wannabe replacements.
All of them are communists.
What now, genius?
Yes one vote from the oppose party is needed look it up!
Her vote was needed one vote from the opposing party is need to move a bill out of committee. Look it up
She “held out” because she wasn’t paid enough! She’ll always sell her vote if the price is high emough!
We must focus like a laser beam on the fundamental problems in the Party. No more of this everybody is wrong so nobody gets the blame!
I seem to recall countless party line votes to move bills out of committee. Since it's your assertion, why don't you provide the documentation?
I have no idea. My I.Q. was just dropped by your comment. LOL
You’re right, I’m wrong. Apparently this issue needed the appearance of bipartisanship that is why Snowe’s participation was solicited by Democrats.
The point is the president stated that a party couldn’t govern by straight partisanship. And Snowe provides the veneer of bipartisanship every time she votes against the interest of the country and sides with Democrats.
