Not a Snowe-Job
It's true that Olympia Snowe voted for a Republican amendment that would have stalled action on health care for a couple of weeks. But she's also been the only Republican to join Democrats on some amendments. One would have kept the overpriced Medicare Advantage plans alive, and another would have gutted MedPAC. Snowe's votes won't be perfect, but in the main, she's been on the side of the righteous much of the time.
