Wait until she figures out how badly she was used by the Democrats....I heard an interview with her where she listed 10 things she didn't like about the bill but she was promised compromise when the actual bill gets drafted so she voted for it. Only a fool would believe those promises.

She even claimed that while she did have 18 conversations with the White House she was never under any pressure....yeah!!! You can't beat the Chicago political machine.....

She was used, plain and simple, and the fact she doesn't even know it should be all the residents of Maine need to know to vote her out.

married to a republican state senator huh...
sounds like a bootstrapper!

still relying on "death panels" to define the right? Really grasping at this point!

So, what about this bill controls costs? benefits get taxed, a tax no doubt pased on to me...plus higher all around taxes...there is no other way to offset 829 BILLION when the system is going to take in the HIGHEST RISK people for THE LOWEST PREMUIMS!

This plan completely removes the expected amount of future care from the equation and is solely based upon what the insured can afford...meaning, not a "business model" but a "welfare" model...

also love how dems think that since they are only taxing the rich...its like free money!
then they wonder what happens when the rich don't buy consumer goods so the goverment sends us a check for $250 to increase spending! Then the taxes get applied to the middle class...just like always...

ITS A AFFORDABILITY ISSUE! NOT A MORAL ISSUE!

Great! Someone in congress votes for what is best for the people that they represent rather then blindly follow the party line. Now All we need is a few more to do the same and Perhaps the country Will be the run the way is was designed by the founding fathers. Not the way the party wants.

She should simply change her political affiliation, stop the phony masquerade.

Obmama has certainly drawn the closet communists out of
hiding, all the communists coming out of the closet.

This phony senator is not representing the people, she's
in favor of fat cats that are influencing her.

Has nothing to do with the people, I've reas S.1679, there is no
meaningful reform, things they really could do to make a difference, they've carefully sidestepped.

The whole thing is a scam, and we're the scammee!!
