Oh Jesus, Mary and Joseph — here we go again.
Centrist Democratic senators have circumvented party leadership to approach Maine GOP Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins about reviving healthcare talks.
Democrats such as Sens. Blanche Lincoln (Ark.), Bill Nelson (Fla.) and Max Baucus (Mont.) have approached Snowe within the past week to discuss her potential support for various healthcare proposals.
Because that worked so well the first time!
Serious question: has there been a weaker, more impotent and pathetic majority in the history of the United States Senate legislative bodies?
“I think that it would be possible for the White House to come together with the Republican leaders to draft a scaled-down bill and I hope that might happen,” Collins said.
LOL. On which planet, Susan?
Ah yes, planet Lieberman.
Lieberman predicted Tuesday that White House officials would soon contact Snowe, Collins and other Republicans.
“I have always felt that the best way to adopt a major reform like healthcare reform is bipartisan,” Lieberman told reporters.
It already was, putz. You voted for it.
