“She could have voted to kill the Senate bill in the Finance Committee, but instead voted to move it to the Senate floor.”
Given that the RATs had a substantial majority on the Finance Committee, and all Democrats on the committee supported moving it to the floor, the bill would have moved to the floor irrespective of how Snowe voted. Talk about a “tradition” that at least one minority vote was needed to move a bill to the floor was just that: talk.
She was a horrible RINO, a traitor to her party on numerous votes, but you can’t pin Obamacare on her.

I will gladly stand corrected, but why was such a big issue made of her Finance Committee vote at that time?

Here’s the latest, which is developeing quickly:”
Among DemocRATS, Congerssman Mike Michaud has announced and Chellie Pingree (whose husband is a multimillionair publisher) and former Governor John Baldacci are seriously thinking about it. Pingree is a radical leftist, Michaud less so.
The Republican nominee is anyone’s guess. One name mentioned is Peter Cianchette, a former state Rep. who ran for Governor in 2002 and came closer to winning than anyone expected, and later became U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica. Is he still remembered?
