Reform Rx - Collins Stuck In Same Snowestorm

Unfortunately for Mainers desperately in need of good representation Senator Collins is coming from pretty much the same direction as Senator Snowe. The Collins Watch is highlighting these outtakes from a July 22, 2009 New York Times article:

Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, worries about requiring employers to provide insurance to workers. Without categorically rejecting the idea, she said: "My inclination is to oppose an employer mandate. Employers want to provide health insurance and do so if they can afford it."


She said that she was "very skeptical" of the new government health insurance plan that Democrats want to create.

Once again Susan Collins prepositions herself to be a "centrist" courted by special interests rather than an active representative for the people who elected her. We need to tire of that game.
